About Center For Youth Wellness
The Center for Youth Wellness (CYW) is a health organization embedded with a primary care pediatric home serving children and families in the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood in San Francisco. We were created to respond to a new medical understanding of how early adversity harms the developing brains and bodies of children. We prevent toxic stress by raising national awareness among those who have the power to make a difference – from parents to pediatricians to policymakers. We screen every young person we see for Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), which we know can lead to toxic stress and poor health outcomes in life. We heal children’s brain and bodies by piloting the best treatment for toxic stress and sharing our findings nationally.
Because every child deserves an equal opportunity to be healthy and thrive.
Because we know that we, as a society, can finally do right by our kids.
Because together, we are changing the world, starting in Bayview Hunters Point!
Join us and speak up for healing! Please give today.
