On November 9, we were joined by 12 donors in the Tenderloin to learn more on why place and community matters and the state of the city’s homeless crisis. It was a privilege to have Don Falk from the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC), Tomiquia Moss of Hamilton Families and Jeff Kositsky of the city’s Department of Homelessness & Supportive Housing share with us how they are providing assistance and support to those that are homeless and at-risk youth, adults, and families. We also heard from Doniece Sandoval of Lave Mae on how their showers and toilets on wheels deliver hygiene and help restore dignity among homeless in San Francisco and learned that socks are the number one necessity for people who are homeless through a myth busters jeopardy game.
