GLIDE is a social justice movement, social service provider, and spiritual community dedicated to strengthening communities and transforming lives. Located in San Francisco’s culturally vibrant but poverty-stricken Tenderloin neighborhood, GLIDE addresses needs and advocates for vulnerable and marginalized individuals/families. Building on its 50-year legacy of co-founders Rev. Cecil Williams and Janice Mirikitani, GLIDE challenges inequities and stands with the poor, people of color, LGBTQ persons, and others facing oppression, isolation, and stigma, while offering a holistic, integrated model of programs and services. Today, under the leadership of President and CEO Karen Hanrahan, GLIDE continues to deepen its impact. Through comprehensive services, advocacy, and spiritual connection, GLIDE remains a powerful beacon of hope for a healthier, more just and inclusive city.
Please bring a pair of new socks to be donated to individuals in need through Citywide. There will be a drop off location in the APPA registration area to collect donations.
Since 1981, the Division of Citywide Case Management Programs (Citywide) has operated under the direction of the University of California San Francisco - Department of Psychiatry at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. Its mission is to support the recovery of San Francisco’s highest risk mentally ill adults and to reduce their use of institutional and acute care (psychiatric emergency services, hospital care, and/or jails), while helping to maximize their ability to maintain stable, productive, fulfilling lives in the community. Program services include medication assessment and management, crisis intervention, outreach and case management, and therapy. Citywide is the main service provider for the Adult Probation Department’s Community Assessment and Services Center (CASC), providing both clinical and reentry case management services. Services through the CASC include comprehensive assessments, crisis intervention, case management, individual and group therapy, and substance abuse services.
