City Hope is the living room for those without enough living space in the Tenderloin. We provide a trusted gathering place and creatively offer as many elements of home as possible for our neighbors on the margins. At City Hope, everyone is: Welcome - we thoughtfully craft each part of our programs, from set up and flow to food and music, with our guests in mind Respected - we hold space for and honor people's traumas and journeys Celebrated - we believe in having fun together, drawing from everyone's unique gifts and providing a place to experience joy
At City Hope, we’re determined to make an impact in people’s lives, even while they wait on housing. This led to the development of the City Hope Community Center in 2015 and the City Hope House, a transitional sober living home, in 2016. Our focus is to be a living room in the Tenderloin for those without enough living space, creatively offering as many elements of home as possible for our neighbors on the margins.
For 25 men and women it is an actual home. The City Hope House is a two-year transitional sober living home for people who have graduated from a recovery program but are not yet ready for independent living. This bridge program prevents people from falling into homelessness, giving them the opportunity to work on their personal finances, improve their employment options, and look for permanent housing.
For hundreds of others, it is the City Hope Community Center - a living room for those without enough living space. It is the dignity of bathrooms and hot showers, basic human necessities like a toothbrush or socks. It is a healthy home-cooked meal, prepared and served to you by those who know and care about you. It’s a place where we have fun, a place to laugh even when you’re struggling. We play games, watch movies, and even sing to each other (join us for karaoke!). City Hope is a trusted gathering place, a center for the community.
