For this event, the Golden Gate Group has partnered with Tenderloin Health Improvement Project, a collective impact project led by the Saint Francis Foundation.

We invite residents, businesses, and organizations is to join us on each of the four corners of the intersections listed above between 3:00 and 4:30 p.m. every first Friday.  Come plant a seed, listen to youth read their poetry, draw your own pictures on the sidewalk with chalk, pick up information about services, organizations and businesses in the area—all during a time and a place where the open-air drug market in the Tenderloin can be at its worst.  Help us take back the TL for all those who live and work here, housed and unhoused.
