The Healing WELL is a free, drop-in wellness center located in the Tenderloin neighborhood of SF. We offer a wide range of wellness services including yoga, tai-chi, meditation, sound healing, art, poetry, and reiki to community members impacted by trauma. Due to COVID- 19, we are seeing an increased need for accessible healing opportunities in the neighborhood. Please join our efforts to bring more wellness options to this beloved community. We are currently hosting classes outside at local parks, partnered SROs and DISH Sites, and inside our physical space at 476 Eddy Street.

If you are a poetry teacher interested in volunteering with a fantastic group of community members, please take a look at our website to learn more and email

Due to COVID- 19 safety procedures all participants, volunteers, and staff are required to practice at a safe distance and wear masks.
Thank you!

About The Healing WELL


476 Eddy Street, San Francisco, CA 94102, US

Mission Statement

The Healing WELL offers calm in the storms of poverty and prejudice, mental illness, substance abuse and addiction. Inspired by the ideals of compassion and justice, we love and guide one another so we can step into brighter futures, healing ourselves and our greater community.


The most common question we hear is: "You’re teaching yoga and poetry to homeless and poor people? Shouldn’t you be focused on helping them find housing, secure jobs and complete their education?" The answer is, "We are." Until and unless people are mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually able to cope with the challenges of their everyday lives, and there are sufficient resources to address long-standing community needs, these goals are unattainable. At The Healing WELL, we offer evidence-based best practices to promote wellness for all people.

Our programming is designed to tend to body, mind and spirit and includes:

  • Movement

  • Mindfulness and contemplative practices

  • Creative arts appreciation and expression

  • Physical fitness and healthy eating

  • Social support
