At Edgewood, we believe a holistic approach to behavioral health can transform the lives of children, youth and their families. Taking a family-centered and integrated approach, our work focuses on issues such as mental health, family relationships and life skills.
What guides us is our belief in every child we serve and our values of engaging families, developing community, generating hope and embracing diversity. We are proud not just of our impact on 7,000 children and families every year, but also of our efforts to continuously improve outcomes more broadly through our research and training programs.
Founded in 1851, Edgewood is the oldest children's charity in the western United States. Since then, we have grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of the San Francisco Bay Area community. Today, we offer innovative behavioral health, family support, and educational services for children and families in San Francisco and San Mateo counties.
Promote the behavioral health of children, youth and families and support a positive transition to adulthood.
