Fellowship Place’s mission is to serve adults living with mental illness by offering a full range of therapeutic support and rehabilitation services that promote independence, wellness, and a meaningful life.  Open 365 days a year, our campus community serves over 750 people annually, the majority of which suffers from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression. Services provided are designed to help increase their stability, self-sufficiency, and help them function at the highest level possible, including help with basic needs, meals, socialization, skill-building groups, case management, job training and career development services, expressive arts programs, computer classes, physical recreation and more. The agency also provides supportive housing for 45 individuals who live in our apartment buildings located near the main campus. 

Fellowship Place is committed to helping the mentally ill, their families, and the public realize that with proper treatment and support, people with a mental illness can be successful and contribute to the vibrancy of our community.

When La Cocina Municipal Marketplace opens this coming spring in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, it will be the country’s first women-led food hall and and the first to take on the innovative role of serving up affordable, healthy food to longtime local residents (as well as to foodie visitors). It also provides manageable rents and business opportunities for the mostly women of color entrepreneurs who will be running the culinary show and who see food as a language connecting people, places and culture. Plus, with support from LISC, La Cocina has activated a long-vacant post office, transforming a former crime hot spot.
