When Kevin moved to San Francisco in 1995, he had no place to stay. Foundation staff immediately got him a hotel voucher, and soon found him an apartment. He’s been in that apartment ever since, and we continue to help him with rental assistance today. When you support the foundation, you ensure that hundreds of clients like Kevin always have a place to call home.

When you support the foundation, you make sure all of our clients are welcomed with open arms.
