  • Mission:
  • Hospitality House's mission is to build community strength by advocating policies and rendering services which foster self-sufficiency and cultural enrichment. Hospitality House promotes self-help, mutual respect, and enhanced self esteem. The goal of these efforts is to make the heart of San Francisco a better place for us all.

  • Overview:
  • Hospitality House is a community center for San Francisco's Tenderloin, Mid-Market, and Sixth Street Corridor neighborhoods, providing opportunities for personal growth and self-determination to homeless and poor residents.

    Our Core Values include: COMMUNITY POWER - People experiencing the problem will come up with the best solution. RESILIENCE - Anybody can change their lives. DIGNITY - All people have equal value and are worthy of honor and respect. MUTUAL RESPECT - Honoring the dignity of all people is both a right and a responsibility. SELF-DETERMINATION - People have the right to make choices about how to live their lives.

    Through six diverse and integrated programs, Hospitality House provides community-based solutions to the problems facing the people we serve. Our programs are each successful models for addressing homelessness and poverty in a cost-effective manner that produce positive outcomes for our participants and the community, they include:

    • Emergency Shelter Program: Provides temporary shelter and support services to over 700 adult men each year, with 25 extended-stay shelter beds and five “emergency” beds dedicated to nightly use. Shelter staff provides accompanying individualized case management that supports participants in overcoming whatever obstacles are standing between them and stable housing.

    • Community Building Program: Developed in 2009, the program supports community organizing efforts, peer-based volunteerism, and leadership development. This multi-faceted program was developed in response to participant requests for opportunities to develop leadership skills while working to improve their community. The program provides a wide range of related opportunities and activities to approximately 300 people each year.

    • Tenderloin & Sixth Street Self Help Centers: As the only multi-service drop-in centers serving both men and women in these neighborhoods, the TSHC serves more than 10,000 individuals each year at its Leavenworth Street location. Due to the success of this model, Hospitality House was asked in 2008 by the city to institute a second facility on Sixth Street, which serves more than 7,000 individuals annually. Both programs provide low-threshold access to a wide range of services, including case management, peer-based support and resources, support services for housing, holistic wellness and socialization activities, vocational services, and access to basic amenities such as restrooms, phones, email, mail service, and street respite. In addition, our partnership with the Harm Reduction Therapy Center provides on-site therapists at both facilities who offer individual and group mental health services on a drop-in basis each day. Approximately 500 individuals with mental health and substance use issues benefit each year from this component alone.

    • Community Arts Program: Founded in 1969, the CAP is the only free-of-charge fine arts studio for homeless and poor neighborhood artists and has long been recognized as an epicenter for the Tenderloin’s urban and outsider art movements. The program is located in the burgeoning Mid Market neighborhood, serving as an anchor community arts organization in this growing arts & commerce district. The program offers more than 2,000 artists the materials and space necessary to create, house, exhibit, and sell their artwork.

    • Employment Resource Center: Hospitality House Employmement Resource Center is designed to provide high quality support to individuals who face multiple barriers to employment by implementing four basic program components: Assessment Tools, Employment Preparation, Job Development/Placement, and Retention Services. The ERC also provides job-seekers with the ability to conduct job-searches via the internet, compose and print resumes, make job-related phone calls and send faxes.

  • History:
  • Hospitality House was founded in 1967 at a time when the Tenderloin neighborhood was experiencing a new phenomenon of sexual liberation and political action by the swell of gay men, lesbians, and transgender people laying claim to the neighborhood. This created one of the first safe havens for LGBT youth who flocked to the city to escape oppressive and sometimes violent homes in search of acceptance and community. Despite the movement’s positive legacy, the neighborhood couldn’t accommodate the large influx of young people, and many found themselves homeless and participating in vice-traffic activities as a means of survival. Despite the positive energy this movement created, more than 3,000 of these youth found themselves living on the streets. Most of them survived by participating in the vice traffic found throughout the low-income Tenderloin district. Concerned residents in the Tenderloin partnered with this struggling population to form Hospitality House, a drop-in space offering food and activities to help homeless youth take an intermission from life on the streets.

    In the early 1980s, homelessness and poverty became a national crisis and Hospitality House adapted to meet the needs of the community by serving both youth and adults in the neighborhood. By 1985, Hospitality House had developed into the multiple-program agency it is today – providing homeless and extremely low-income people with the programs and services they need to realize their full potential.

    Today, Hospitality House serves primarily adults living in the Tenderloin, Mid-Market and South of Market neighborhoods who are struggling with the myriad of social, economic, and other barriers that people struggling with poverty face on a daily basis.
