San Francisco Dream Keeper Initiative Programs
The Dream Keeper Initiative is a new, citywide effort to invest in San Francisco’s Black and African American community as part of Mayor London N. Breed’s roadmap for addressing structural inequities in San Francisco.
Amani Mental Health Training Program
The Amani Mental Health Training Program provides new education and employment opportunities in the mental health field for Black/African American city residents and grows the number of mental health professionals trained to meet the urgent need for Afri-centric, culturally responsive mental health and wellness in San Francisco.
The goal is to both provide new education and employment opportunities in the mental health field and to grow the number of Black/African American peer support and mental health professionals.
Vision: Reimagine typical mental health education and employment pathways and infuse an Afri-centric approach throughout by growing the individual and communal sense of ownership and affirmation within these spaces.
