Our History

From its humble beginnings renovating a single, run-down Single Room Occupancy (SRO) residential hotel in 1981, TNDC has grown to be the largest community-based development corporation in San Francisco.

TNDC has always been rooted in the Tenderloin, but has now grown across numerous neighborhoods in San Francisco. As TNDC as grown, we have adopted programs and expanded our services to better serve communities inside and outside our buildings. By deepening our work outside homes, we have become a comprehensive community development organization. Learn more TNDC's roots below.
