I'm a retired senior raising a child with emotional and developmental issues. Edgewood is such a great source of help and support. Every staff member I have encountered is caring and dedicated. Thank-you!

Francisco Ferrer and the team at Edgewood Bayview continue to impress and inspire me with their dedication to their mission and the families they serve.

I work at a neighboring early literacy nonprofit and have collaborated with Edgewood to deliver workshops and support services to families with young children in our community. They are excellent partners in service and it has been a joy to work with them.

I will never forget Edgewood Children's Services and what they did for my son. My son resided at Edgewood for 18 months as part of their residential treatment program and NPS school. The staff was amazing. Each person that our family came in contact with at Edgewood brought a wonderful perspective to the care for our son. The facility is clean, expansive, and well-maintained. The individual residential cottages are very clean, open, warm and inviting. (it is a very nice home-like environment....not at all institutional-like.) We were very happy with the therapists, doctors and nursing staff there as well. They were always very kind and helpful. It was a VERY difficult decision to send our severely mentally ill son to a residential treatment facility.....perhaps, the hardest decision in our parenting life...Edgewood Center helped to make that decision and the transition a smooth one. We have NEVER regretted that decision and will always remember the kindness and extreme professionalism that they showed to our family.
