Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC)

Every day we help over 4,700 people with low incomes thrive by building deeply affordable homes and supportive communities. Because we believe everyone has a right to the resources they need to thrive, we begin where thriving begins: in a home. Homes are key to personal growth, community health and well-being, and lasting economic and racial equity.

Majority of the people we house make $15,000 a year of $1,300 a month.

We are proud to call the Tenderloin our home while also building affordable homes across eight other San Francisco neighborhoods. We have 41 buildings and 11 more on the way.

Beyond homes, we build partnerships within the community to increase resident access to healthy foods and activities, after-school education, and advocacy opportunities.

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.


We believe opportunity knocks only when you have a door. In San Francisco, TNDC envisions diverse communities where people with low incomes can fulfill their potential and meet their basic needs. Their housing is affordable and near amenities and services enhance the quality of their lives. People feel safe and supported by their community. All are invited to offer their voice in the issues that shape their lives.

In San Francisco, California, TNDC stands as a catalyst for advancing community interests and a force for expanding the choices that enhance livability, including housing, employment, education, food, cultural activities, and open spaces.

As a healthy organization, TNDC is viewed as a trusted and well-organized community ally locally and is a practice leader nationally. We contribute throughout San Francisco by providing affordable housing and other resources partly by partnering effectively with many other organizations and by supporting resident leadership.
