GLIDE's mission is to create a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization.
GLIDE is a beloved cultural icon and San Francisco's premiere provider of innovative social services for marginalized populations with an annual operating budget of $16.2 million and a staff of 150 employees. GLIDE offers comprehensive support services to San Francisco's poor and homeless communities to overcome the barriers of poverty, violence, addiction, dependency and low self-worth. The organization has held steady the vision of supporting and uplifting the disenfranchised through unconditional love, acceptance and respect for over four decades.
