Programs & Services

A variety of programs are offered, with services being free of charge to those with a mental illness and to their family members and friends.  Each day we work to help teach people about their illness or recent diagnosis.  We educate parents, family members and friends about mental illness so that they will be better able to help their loved ones.

C.A.R.E. Team
(Community Alternative Response Team)

The purpose of this service is to provide intensive outreach
and engagement services to a large and diverse group of homeless
at risk/immanent risk of becoming homeless mentally ill
individuals, in order to reduce client homelessness, hospitalizations
and/or recidivism.  This is accomplished through the operation of
an outreach C.A.R.E. Team staffed by Peer Counselors and comprised
of two sections; one in-house at the Enterprise Resource Center
and one mobile unit.
 To contact the C.A.R.E. Team: (415) 847-1266
