ABOUT

The Hyde Street Community Services (HSCS) is a non-profit organization that provides comprehensive psychiatric, medical, substance abuse and case management services since 1975 to the residents of San Francisco and the Tenderloin District. We provide a pycho-social-medical model of integrated care that includes psychiatry services, mental health individual and group treatments, migraine/pain and cognitive rehabilitation as well as neuropsychological and psychological assessment services to over 600 San Francisco residents each year.

 

Our mission is to achieve and maintain the highest quality and degree of independence possible for each of our clients. We serve multi-culturally diverse adults with medical, psychological and social challenges that include depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Common psychosocial factors include homelessness, severe trauma histories, and indigence. Medical challenges include HIV, substance abuse, TBI, Stroke and Hepatitis C. We have bilingual therapists, a Psychology, Neuropsychology and Social Work training program, and a specialized support program for the Arab/Muslim Community.

The HSCS programs employ a harm reduction philosophy that emphasizes wellness and growth with a core belief that services should be holistic, individualized and strength-based with the knowledge that clients can and do recover. Services are comprehensive and treatment planning is client-driven.

At Hyde Street Community Services, we care for the whole person: The emotional wellbeing, cognitive health and physical functioning. Our goal is to maximize our patients’ independence and help them achieve the best quality of life possible.

TESTIMONIALS

“I started treatment at Hyde St. Community Services and the Tenderloin Clinic due to alcoholism. I was also suffering from depression and anxiety. The treatment, staff and work at the community center brought my progress to light, like realizing myself in a clearing fog as a person and not just an ‘it.’ The seven or so years of treatment at Hyde Street Community Services have taken me from drunken rages to volunteering at the San Francisco Center. I then became a part-time janitor. Now I am thinking ahead with good intentions, thanks to the services and care provided by this agency.”
