The Tenderloin Center is a part of San Francisco’s Tenderloin Emergency Initiative. It is forging a path to work with and support unhoused residents and people suffering from substance use disorder. San Francisco staff and community partners are working together to mitigate widespread open-air drug use and lack of accessible resources for people in the Tenderloin neighborhood.
