About Us

Mission

To help people affected by cancer enhance their health and well-being through participation in a professional program of emotional support, education, and hope.

We Believe in Your Ability to Survive

The Wellness Community brings support, education and hope to thousands of people and families facing cancer. Evidence-based services not only complement medical treatment but have been found to enhance recovery and improve the quality of life for people affected by this disease.

Welcome to Our Family

As part of an international non-profit organization, The Wellness Community San Francisco East Bay takes it place with 23 other Wellness Communities across the US plus 56 satellite and off-site programs, centers in Tel Aviv and Tokyo, three centers currently in development and online at The Virtual Wellness Community.

Our History

Since 1990, The Wellness Community has offered San Francisco and the East Bay a unique menu of services under one umbrella: professionally facilitated support and networking groups, mind/body/exercise classes, educational programs, and a variety of social activities. In addition, special programs bring this same high level of service to Spanish speakers and children/teenagers whose parents have cancer.
