Located on Cole Street (at Haight) in San Francisco, Huckleberry’s Cole Street Youth Clinic opened in SF’s Haight Ashbury District in 1992. It is recognized as a national model of adolescent health services because it effectively addresses the primary health care issues of at-risk adolescents, while simultaneously attending to their complex psychosocial and health promotion needs. The clinic is a collaborative effort involving Huckleberry Youth Programs, the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and the University of California at San Francisco’s Division of Adolescent Medicine.
The clinic offers comprehensive, age-appropriate, culturally-sensitive adolescent health services to teens and transitional age youth (TAY). Services include birth control, sexually transmitted infection (STI), HIV and Hepatitis C testing and treatment, PEP and PrEP (HIV prevention medication and services), primary care, urgent care, gender-affirming care and mental health and/or substance abuse counseling.
Services are free and confidential
If you are 12 or over you can consent for your own treatment and do not need a parent or guardian’s permission to receive sexual health services or certain types of counseling.
