The Future of San Francisco

What's the future for San Francisco? Height and density? How much higher can San Francisco go on landfill and 49 miles surrounded by density? Neighborhoods have become parking lots for local transit and commuter parking. Affordable homes for residents, families and children are hard to find. The San Francisco skyline is filled with new sky high buildings of condos, apartments, renters, businesses and multinational money makers — all large buildings with little space for outdoor recreation, schools and playgrounds. Do two California bills, SB 827 and SB35, interact and preclude public health and environmental protections and limit the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA)? Join the conversation and share your views about the present and future of San Francisco.

Hospitality House 50th Anniversary Celebration (San Francisco)

Hospitality House will be commemorating its 50th year anniversary by “Celebrating the Power of Our Voices, Our Stories, Our Community” on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at the Green Room of San Francisco’s War Memorial, 401 Van Ness Avenue. Doors open at 6PM until 9PM. Advance tickets are $90 if purchased by Friday, August 4, 2017 and $150 thereafter. Tickets at the door are $200. The celebration will feature a heavy hors d’oeuvres menu, special cocktails, a silent auction, and a program reflecting the rich history and stories of Hospitality House.

Hospitality House’s deep roots in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, Sixth Street Corridor, and Mid-Market neighborhoods began in 1967, when a committed group of volunteers opened our first drop-in center to community residents. Our ability to respond to community challenges is founded upon addressing both the consequences and causes of poverty and homelessness. For five decades, Hospitality House has remained a community institution, drawing its strength from its peer-based model while preserving our working class neighborhoods where all residents are considered community assets. We proudly note that our current Executive Director, Joe Wilson is formerly homeless, and a former resident of Hospitality House’s Shelter Program.

For more information, visit www.hospitalityhouse50th.org or call 415.749.2184. Join us and for an evening of community celebration - be moved, be changed, and be inspired. Hosted by Hospitality House SF
