Community Well is a welcoming center in San Francisco's Excelsior District for individuals, couples and growing families of all backgrounds to connect with holistic services supporting early parenthood and overall wellness that contribute to a better quality of life, and for holistic practitioners to connect with each other and the community. We are a multifaceted, non-hierarchical organization offering compassionate support, real-life education and skill-building.
We envision a city in which families and individuals of all backgrounds have access to high-quality information, resources, services, and holistic support to grow and thrive physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially.
Community Well is a non-profit project fiscally sponsored by the non-profit Social Good. It is managed by an Advisory Board of stakeholders including health and wellness professionals, parents, educators and activists who assess community needs, inform programming, and evaluate quality.
