We are simply floored by the outpouring of support and generosity on December 1, Giving Tuesday. Because of you, we were able to raise over $35,000! We totally surpassed our goal. Thank you!
There is no denying that 2020 was a challenging year. Facing issues such as the COVID19 pandemic, police brutality, wildfire season, and a dramatic political climate, Felton Institute still managed to close out the year strong.
Your contribution makes a real difference.
As an essential service provider to the community’s most vulnerable, Felton Institute is fiercely committed to responding to the call of service. Just as we have for so many years, we have no plans on stopping now. Pivoting and adapting our social services and mental health programs to comply with health guidelines was no easy task. But we did it, with your help and your support.
As the holiday season approaches and the year winds down, we pause to recharge and reflect on our successes.
- Uninterrupted mental health services for the Deaf and Senior Populations.
- The successful creation and launch of the ECE Community Hub, supporting students from low-income families with remote learning.
- 24-hour Suicide Hotline through San Francisco Suicide Prevention.
- Outreach and support for the Unhoused populations.
- Programs promoting social justice and reentry services.
- Clinical counseling services via Telehealth.
- Providing Felton families and clients with educational gifts and a holiday meal through Felton’s Family Support program.
We look ahead to 2021 with optimism and hope. And we are grateful that you are part of the community of donors and volunteers who help us fulfill our mission of transforming lives through innovative mental health programs and social services.
