Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation
TNDC is a nonprofit that helps people focus on living a meaningful life by building deeply affordable homes and supportive communities in San Francisco. We currently provide homes to over 5,000 people with low incomes through 43 buildings across seven neighborhoods. Our staff works alongside people, families, and communities that have faced severe economic and racial inequity in the hopes of improving health disparities, raising marginalized voices, and building a better future for all. Through programs like the Tenderloin After-School Program and the Healthy Corner Store Coalition, we have driven positive change in San Francisco for the last 38 years.
Majority of the people we house make $15,000 a year or $1,300 a month.
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 envision a world where everyone has a stable and safe place to call home. A world where housing is treated as a human right. A world where economic status, race, and other social identities do not determine where or how people can live. Where everyone has a meaningful voice in the decisions affecting them. Where future generations are better off than the ones preceding them.
