Learn about the Tenderloin Emergency Initiative

Connecting everyone in the neighborhood to services they need, improving safety, and investing in the Tenderloin community

The Tenderloin is home to families, immigrants, seniors, merchants and workers, some of them unhoused. All deserve a thriving neighborhood to call home.

The Tenderloin Emergency Initiative is a partnership between the community and the City and County of San Francisco.

Read the guide and plan

San Francisco has a guide and plan for the emergency in the Tenderloin to: 

  • Get both housed and unhoused people to the services they need
  • Improve safety
  • Reduce crime
  • Increase investment in the community

The plan is a start and will change based on the opportunities and challenges faced, and on feedback from the community.
