Changes At Tenderloin HealthOctober 9th, 2008
by Shaun Osburn
Tenderloin Health, a resource center for homeless people living with HIV, will be losing part of their funding from The City this month. St. Anthony’s neighbors at 183 Golden Gate Avenue are not shutting their doors permanently; they are starting services later to adjust to their decreased budget.
“We’re not going to be able to operate in the morning,” Jeannie Little, Director of Community Services at Tenderloin Health, told CBS 5 yesterday.
Dariush Kayhan, the homeless policy director for the mayor’s office, said yesterday that the city is working to keep Tenderloin Health’s programs open and is “renegotiating their contract based on available funding.”
We hope the best for our friends at Tenderloin Health, and more importantly for the people they serve.
