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


The Edgewood Center for Children and Families (“Edgewood”) is the place to begin for any child or youth to get the mental health care, social services, and academic support they need from highly trained, welcoming professionals. Through committed staff, many with lived experiences, who strongly believe in the mission, Edgewood offers a full range of services for children, youth, and families in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their vision is that everyone Edgewood serves has the power to live life with understanding, confidence, strength, and joy. Edgewood, established in 1851, was the first children’s non-profit in the western United States.

Building on a strong and dynamic foundation of service in the Bay Area, today Edgewood offers over 15 programs in San Francisco and San Mateo counties. On its unique property and across 6 locations, prevention and early intervention, community-based services, intensive programs, including 24-hour crisis stabilization and intervention in two counties and residential care are provided to over 5000 children and youth each year.  Edgewood has a new opportunity to expand and bring critical relief to Bay Area children and families. Edgewood is broadening outreach and identifying new growth channels that will increase a wide range of client population and realigning outpatient services to meet the soaring needs of Bay Area children, youth and families who need help now.

Edgewood has also re-established a teaching institute for research, advocacy, and educational programs to train the next generation of providers.
