Faith-Based Resource Centers

Faith-based Resource Centers are a program of Santa Clara County Mental Health Department aimed at providing faith-based re-entry supports and services to individuals returning to the community and their families. These Faith-Based Resource Centers provide services in a natural community setting, not in an institutional setting.
The three Faith-Based Resource Centers are easily accessible by car, bus or walking.  All are welcome to receive supports and services, regardless of faith tradition – no appointment required.
