Edgewood Center for Children and Families is a premier provider of (video of street signs “29th Ave., Vicente St.”, pan of front of Edgewood building) Behavioral Health Services for children, youth, and families offering preventative community-based and residential treatment. Programs are (video of “Edgewood” plaque) for Bay Area Youth who struggle with mental health issues as a result (video of speaker, caption “Keri Kirby, Manager of Philanthropic Services") of trauma.
