TEL HI’s mission is to enhance the lives of the people in our community.

We focus on meeting the needs of a culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse community with services that

  • promote stability for families;

  • build skills and self-worth that allow toddlers, youth, and adults to reach for their dreams and succeed; and

  • support seniors in remaining vital and independent.

How do we do all this? We provide a combination of free and low-cost programs, such as infant and toddler care, preschool, after school activities, summer camp, personal development classes, senior programs, community celebrations, and the list goes on. By focusing on helping people, we make our community stronger.



North Beach Citizens utilizes the talents of the community to innovatively address the needs of its homeless and low-income citizens in an atmosphere of trust, integrity, and respect.


Since 2001, we have helped hundreds of our neighbors transition from homelessness to housing and from crisis to community.


Building a Society of Compassion and Support

The St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco was established in 1860 on a simple principle: assist those who need help the most.

Whether it be through financial support, spiritual guidance, or by providing basic necessities such as food and shelter, we strive to offer our clients with a sense of hope during their darkest hours.

Helping San Francisco’s Most Vulnerable Populations

While the Society has undergone many changes and transformations over the years, we have never wavered in our commitment to support those in need, regardless of race, creed, religion or sexual orientation. From our humble beginnings to our current programs supporting the homeless and survivors of domestic violence, SVDP-SF has remained a champion of San Francisco’s most vulnerable populations.

Today, our organization bolsters 100 dedicated men and women, all working together to improve the lives of over 1,000 people in San Francisco everyday


The Mission of the Chinatown Community Development Center is to build community and enhance the quality of life for San Francisco residents. We are a place-based community development organization serving primarily the Chinatown neighborhood, and also serve other areas including North Beach and the Tenderloin. We are a community development organization with many roles - as neighborhood advocates, organizers and planners, and as developers and managers of affordable housing.

We believe in a comprehensive vision of community, a quality environment, a healthy neighborhood economy, and active voluntary associations. We are committed to the empowerment of low-income residents, diversity and coalition building, and social and economic justice.

The values of respect, compassion, empowerment, and teamwork represent the core principles we stand for and believe in at Chinatown CDC. Ours is a place-based organization that treats each person with compassion and respect. We build a powerful coalition of advocates and supporters who contribute their own voices in the community. We strengthen community through teamwork and encourage people to learn, and to share ideas and knowledge across all communities and within Chinatown CDC.
