Project Administrator


Mission: TNDC develops community and provides affordable housing and services for people with low incomes in the Tenderloin and throughout San Francisco, to promote equitable access to opportunity and resources.

 Established in 1981, TNDC has grown to employ more than 430 staff, to develop, own, manage and provide supportive services in 42 properties that offer deeply affordable housing for nearly 5,000 tenants, and to expand its work in community organizing and afterschool programming. TNDC is viewed as a trusted and well-organized community ally locally and a practice leader nationally. In San Francisco, TNDC envisions diverse communities where people with low incomes can fulfill their potential and meet their basic needs. In the Tenderloin, TNDC stands as a catalyst for advancing community interests and a force for expanding the choices that enhance livability, such as housing, employment, education, food, cultural activities, and open spaces.

TNDC values are: Integrity, Excellence, Inclusion, Collaboration and Equity



The Tenant + Community Services Department provides supportive services to tenants residing in TNDC’s housing portfolio as well as community-based health and wellness programming for residents of the Tenderloin and throughout San Francisco. Supportive services are provided on site by social workers to help TNDC housing tenants achieve long-term stability- economically, physically and emotionally. The Department’s community-based initiatives include an after school program (Tenderloin After-School Program -TASP) as well as a Health and Wellness program. TASP provides a safe, supportive and engaging environment for young people in the Tenderloin. The Health and Wellness program has three focus areas: creating a health promotion environment for seniors who are aging in place; growing organic produce to feed the residents of the Tenderloin and cultivate food justice through urban agriculture; and highlight the connection between food and nutrition through the distribution of food and cooking demonstrations.
