The City of Antioch held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to welcome Felton’s Angelo Quinto Community Response Team (AQCRT) to the community.


AQCRT works in collaboration with the City of Antioch, Antioch Police Department, and local community-based organizations to provide a 24/7 non-police response to low-level, non-life threatening 911 calls. Felton was unanimously selected by Antioch City Council to launch the city’s first, as well as Contra Costa County’s first, 24/7 community response team.


Felton Institute responds to the needs of our community by providing innovative, evidence-informed social services to transform lives. Our organization offers 50+ programs that address mental health, the unhoused, early care and education, those impacted by the justice system, transitional age youth, as well as aging adults. Our award-winning programs, which have been recognized as national models, combine the latest scientific research with cultural sensitivity and a deep commitment to supporting and reflecting the communities we serve.

Founded in 1889, Felton is the oldest secular non-profit social services provider in the City and County of San Francisco. We have expanded our services across most Bay Area counties and continue to be at the forefront of pioneering new approaches to meet the emerging needs of underserved populations.

We know what it looks like to successfully build community.

We foster impactful change by strengthening the community as a premiere service provider. We also strengthen other service providers by supporting them in their fiscal, human resources, communications, IT and overall agency operations. With Felton’s support, they are able to focus on providing the best services to their clients, doing the work they were meant to do.

Felton empowers the community and ensures successful outcomes to all we engage with.
