Investing in Community Health

Through the Tenderloin Health Improvement Partnership, the Foundation and the Hospital are working with community partners to improve health outcomes in the Tenderloin.

Many of San Francisco’s most vulnerable residents live in the Tenderloin and face complex health challenges that result in visits to their neighborhood hospital. Led by the Saint Francis Foundation and Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, the Tenderloin Health Improvement Partnership (TLHIP) provides a framework to address health equity and improve neighborhood health outcomes in the Tenderloin.

Our collective impact partnership model includes neighborhood serving organizations, local businesses, government agencies, funders, healthcare partners, and others committed to improving health and well-being in the Tenderloin. By aligning priorities, resources and activities to create pathways to health for residents, TLHIP is pioneering population health approaches that invest in, support and heal the Tenderloin.
