Referrals to Progress Foundation

Referral Process

Thank you for your interest in Progress Foundation. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis and need immediate assistance, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. Alternatively, individuals can contact Progress Foundation’s Dore Urgent Care Clinic at 52 Dore St, 94103 or (415) 553-3100 for crisis evaluation and triage to a Crisis Residential Treatment Program.

To refer yourself, a family member, or a friend into a Residential Treatment Program, you will be required to work with a mental health clinician, such as a Psychiatrist, Therapist or Case Manager. The Foundation does NOT accept self-referrals. Your mental health clinician can use this checklist to begin the referral process.

To receive approval for treatment to any of our Residential Treatment Programs for up to 90 days, you will need to:

  1. Prove residency in San Francisco
  2. Have San Francisco Medi-Cal, or prove you are in the process of applying for SF Medi-Cal and do not currently have open Medi-Cal benefits in any other county

Thank you! For further questions on our services and referrals please contact our Clinical Department at (415) 861-0828 ext 138 or email
