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, is the oldest children’s non-profit in the western United States.

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.
