Huckleberry’s mission is to educate, inspire, and support underserved youth to develop healthy life choices, to maximize their potential, and to realize their dreams. Since 1967, we have accomplished this by providing San Francisco and Marin youth and their families with a network of services and opportunities by caring peers and adults.
We seek to empower young people to develop and maintain healthy relationships as well as promote their talents, ideas, leadership and health; to assist youth and their families in overcoming the obstacles they may encounter, which can include family concerns, drug and alcohol abuse, mental health challenges, teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, violence, social and economic inequities, and physical and sexual abuse; and to assist clients in navigating complex social welfare, educational and juvenile justice systems.
Core beliefs underlying our services include respecting and affirming the diversity of our clients, recognizing and understanding the value and dignity of young people and acknowledging their potential to become healthy, responsible adults.
Many of Huckleberry’s services for youth and their families are provided free of charge.
We provide some counseling services on a sliding scale basis.
