If you're trying to get into this program, know that they aren't at all straight forward on the website. I was denied after a several hour interview because I take an anti-depressant. The website says no anti-psychotics...that's a whole different thing. So I got off the anti-depressant so I could be admitted for alcoholism, came back a few months later and was told "once you are denied , you don't get another chance." These people wasted numerous hours of my time and dashed my hopes of getting better through their well respected program due to very poor communication skills. I'm glad to have found this out prior to committing to 2 years of their lies.

My loved one is there now due to bad choices he made in life. He didn't have a prison sentence or anything but he did abuse drugs. I am told I can not see or speak to him for 15 months, this breaks my heart because I am the one that suggested he goes there. No letters, calls, or visits for 15 months is cruel and unusual punishment. He is new to the program so I will sit back and see how this works. I am happy though that for now he is off drugs. Maby this is what he needed to kick his addiction. He has a family, a fiance, and host of friends who are sober and are waiting for him to kick this habbit. He is a facebook lover and no computers, phones or TV's will probably bring the focus back to himself.

I thank God I ran across all of this information.What wonderful information and stories I have read! I have a son that has been in and our of prison most of his adult life , drugs and acohol etc..He is currently in jail waiting to see what the justice system has in store. Abviously prison hasnt been the answer.Walk the fence and talk to other inmates about how they can get a fix in the inside, or the next crime they can get away with? As I read all the testimonies, Delancey Street is the hope for my Sons life. I pray there is devine intervention and you would except my son instead of another prison term. I have spoke to my son reguarding Delancey Street.He was very receptive.He realizes he is at the very bottom and needs the help.I hope you will give him a chance!Delancey could be the miracle he needs.I honestly believe this could the last chance in this life he could have.
Thank you so much for your time.
Keep up the great work!
Sincerly,

I went to D.S.F, some 15 years ago as a last chance, to save my miserable hide. I'd been using for 28 yrs. and had done 10 yrs. locked up. I was so lucky that D.S.F. gave me the chance to learn what made me crazy. So many things are learned at D.S.F. that we graduates could take up hours explaining. Bottom line they let me get a life. Which I love. My love for Mimi And the foundation will be never ending.

When I was in high school I was able to join a mentor for a tour of the Delancey Street Facility in San Francisco. I was so impressed by it that it remains one of my favorite charities. I have run into people from Delancey St. in so many places. I buy my trees from them at Christmas, I use them when I move, I eat at the restaurant, and I even had the opportunity to recommend one of their clients for a position at work once. The clients come out of that program with a totally new outlook on life. I have seen it happen more than once, and am proud to support them in whatever way I can.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the clients develop real pride in their lives, and

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so dedicated to their clients and the service they provide.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open a new facility, expand it's vocational training program to include more mid-level job training, green its existing facilities.

Although I am not at all aware of the inner-workings of this nonprofit, I am impressed by the way they help people with addictions and / or a criminal background integrate back into society in a positive way. The Delancey Street Restaurant and Crossroads Cafe are both fantastic interfaces for the public to experience this nonprofit and its people.
