TNDC’s Impact on the Community

  • Provide housing to 3,600 low-income seniors, families, people with disabilities, emancipated youth, and individuals. The formerly homeless make up about 25% of our residents, children make up 11%, and the elderly 40%.
  • Employee approximately 319 people, including 25% who live or work in the Tenderloin District or adjacent neighborhoods.
  • Engage 100 volunteers each year from 10+ companies including Adobe, BDO, Blackrock, Dolby, Fitness SF, NerdWallet, Salesforce, Yammer, and Zoosk.
  • Maintain a tenant retention rate of 92%, which is among the best – if not the best – of any community development corporation in the nation.
  • Give away 3,400 lbs in free and healthy food each year, grown through the TNDC Tenderloin People’s Garden and the four (4) rooftop gardens we maintain.
  • Raise over $2M through a combination of grants, individual donations, and events from people who care about keeping San Francisco affordable for all its residents.
  • Won’t you help us build a more inclusive city? How you can help.
