What We Do
Progress Foundation provides individuals who are experiencing symptoms of a serious mental illness and other co-occurring disorders with treatment alternatives to institutional placement. We are a private, non-profit mental health agency operating in San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma Counties. The primary treatment philosophy of Progress Foundation is described by the Principles of Social Rehabilitation, which emphasize the role of a home-like treatment environment, the importance of building honorable therapeutic relationships and the significance of encouraging the active participation of the client in his or her own treatment planning.
Join Our Team
Staff work with clients to create treatment plans tailored to the unique strengths of the individual. Services are targeted to respond to the needs of individuals who are considered severely disabled due to mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse. Progress Foundation provides the full spectrum of treatment from a community-based Psychiatric Crisis Clinic and short-term Crisis Residential to moderate and long-term Transitional Residential treatment. We also provide Case Management Services in independent housing and treatment-focused cooperative living apartments.
Each program level is designed to meet the needs of clients with the level of support necessary for that individual. Admission to all Progress Foundation programs is on a voluntary basis only. Services are specifically targeted to respond to the needs of individuals who are considered severely disabled due to mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse. Program services and staffing reflect a strong commitment to diversity and an awareness of the critical importance of cultural, ethnic, linguistic and social issues in the provision of effective community behavioral health services.
