Mission: TNDC develops community and provides affordable housing and services for people with low incomes in the Tenderloin and throughout San Francisco, to promote equitable access to opportunity and resources.

Today, over 6,100 people are housed across our 44 buildings and in a few years we will reach over 10,000 people.

Rooted in the Tenderloin with branches across seven San Francisco neighborhoods and growing, TNDC’s staff of nearly 500 strives to work alongside communities and meet people where they're at. We believe that only together we can build a future with economic and racial equity.
