Improving thousands of lives each
year in the San Francisco Bay Area

Each year, Edgewood Center for Children and Families helps thousands of abused, neglected, and traumatized children in the Bay Area through life-changing programs that transform and heal. Edgewood operates residential, community-based, and school-based programs throughout San Francisco, San Mateo, and East Bay (Alameda & Contra Costa) counties among others.

Our emphasis on individual strengths helps our clients succeed. We follow a holistic and family-centered approach to address mental health, support families and build life skills. More importantly, we reach youth where and when they need us: in their communities, schools, and neighborhoods.

Edgewood helps individuals and their loved ones who struggle with mental illness and behavioral health issues. We provide treatment and prevention programs that make it easier for children and their families to overcome their challenges and transform their lives.
