Broderick Street Adult Residential Facility
RAMS provides board & care, mental health, and medical support services at the Broderick Street Adult Residential Facility (BSARF), which is licensed by the California Department of Social Services - Community Care Licensing Division. The program operates in partnership with the Housing & Urban Health (HUH) and Behavioral Health Services (BHS) sections of San Francisco Department of Public Health (SF DPH) and can accommodate 33 adults. This is a community-based home for individuals who are struggling with both mental and medical illness. Due to lack of sufficient resources and support, many BSARF residents might otherwise be living in hospitals, institutions, or be homeless. The multi-disciplinary, caring, and committed staff and program structure provides residents with stability, group and individual activities, safety and support, while participating in a healing community that nourishes a sense of balance and meaning both in the world and in themselves. This facility provides long-term stay for clients who are dual and triple diagnosed and hard-to-place, with some of whom are monolingual Asian Americans. Treatment services, therapeutic activities, language-capacity, acupuncture, food and leisure activities are tailored to fit the various needs of the client population. Bilingual services are offered, as is the opportunity for clients to work with the Hire-Ability Vocational Services. Admission into the Broderick Street Adult Residential Facility is facilitated through SF DPH-BHS, Community Programs Placement team.
