About

Come to a place where unconditional love changes lives every day, and hope triumphs over sorrow. Everyone is welcome.

Located at Ellis and Taylor in the Tenderloin, one of San Francisco's harshest urban environments, Glide Foundation is an oasis that has served the poor and disenfranchised for over 40 years. From serving over 750,000 meals a year, to operating a professional medical clinic, to youth job training, to offering weekly spiritual celebrations at Glide Church, and much more – Glide touches the lives of many people. Glide has helped thousands of disenfranchised and poor people get back on their feet and find their way to jobs, housing and spiritual fulfillment.

Glide operates the new 9-story, 52-unit Cecil Williams Glide Community House, the Janice Mirikitani Glide Family, Youth and Child Care Center, a major training and employment services program, adult computer education programs, an exciting new computer education program for children and youth, mentoring programs, poetry and performing arts programs for children and youth, a Crisis Center serving the homeless population, and addiction recovery programs. Glide welcomes and affirms straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people of every race and color and ethnicity, religious belief and economic or social standing.
