COVID19 in the Tenderloin

COVID19 has taken the lives of poor people, especially poor people of color, at a disproportionate rate all over the United States. While San Francisco has succeeded in flattening the curve (so far) the people of the Tenderloin are at substantial risk. Homelessness is an underlying health risk. People living in poverty have higher rates of diabetes and heart and lung disease. Combined these factors put the people of the Tenderloin at risk. If you would like to support us in providing personal protective gear (masks, hand sanitizer, and tents) to people at risk, please donate here.

Advocacy

"If you have come here to help me, don't waste your time. But if your liberation and well-being are bound up with mine, let us work together."

This is our guiding principle as we collaborate with our neighbors to bring about a more just society.

Recently, Fools advocacy informed an SF Chronicle article on the overcrowding of Tenderloin streets.

Education

Founded as an educational and charitable organization, we are a community dedicated to learning. We offer internships, immersion programs, and community based learning programs dedicated to nurturing the talents and intelligence within each of us.

SUPPORT THE WORK OF FAITHFUL FOOLS
THROUGH PARTICIPATION, VOLUNTEERING,
OR GENEROUSLY MAKING A DONATION

We are called to a ministry of presence that acknowledges each human's incredible worth.

 

Aware of our judgments, we seek to meet people where they are through the arts, education, advocacy, and accompaniment.

 

We participate in shattering myths about those living in poverty, seeing the light, courage, intelligence, strength, and creativity of the people we encounter.

 

We discover on the streets our common humanity through which celebration, community, and healing occur.

ABOUT US

We are a live-work community in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. We are dedicated to deep social change through reflection and action.

We discover on the streets our 

common humanity.
