San Francisco Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (SF-LEAD)

San Francisco Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (SF-LEAD). 

Felton’s LEAD services are provided as part of LEAD San Francisco, a multi-agency collaborative partnership program designed to divert repeat, low-level adult offenders at their earliest contact with law enforcement.
LEAD services are an alternative to jail and prosecution for those experiencing mental health, substance use and co-occurring disorders. The Felton LEAD team works with residents referred in the 16th Street/Mission neighborhood.
Implementing a harm-reduction philosophy, staff provide clinical case management, behavioral health and wellness interventions to support clients in addressing their substance use and/or mental health needs, and support recovery.
Our services foster and encourage individuals to engage in positive, developmentally appropriate pathways, access a support structure that creates and maintains stability in their lives, and helps prevent recidivism.
