Friendship Centers
The Friendship Center programs are community-based activities that provide recreation and socialization opportunities for adults with mental illness. The purpose of the program is to offer people the opportunity to participate in activities and events that give them a sense of belonging and, for many, an extended and caring family. The monthly Friendship Center calendar is available here.

Location: Centers are located throughout San Mateo County, see details on the calendar for times.
