Walk-In Center

Move Beyond Crisis

The WALK-IN CENTER (WIC) allows healing to begin with a place to sit, someone to hear your story, a toothbrush, and a bed for the night. We can provide referrals, shelter, help replace a lost birth certificate, assist you with enrolling in benefits, get you help, and partner with you in goal-setting or understanding your needed next steps.

General Hours:
Monday – Thursday: 8:30am – 1pm and 2pm – 4:30pm
Friday: 8:30am – 1pm
For general referrals, inquiries and case management of individuals and families.

#SundayFunday #Community #TenderloinSF #flashbackfriday to the #SummerOfLove! Long before our Real Talk blog, there was Venture, GLIDE's print publication in the 1960s. The entire August issue in 1967 focused on the Black People’s Free Store. Check the profile link to read more!

"What is a free store? Its first principle is to give whatever can be obtained to those who will take. This means clothing, furniture, appliances, food. In a ghetto area where physical and emotional needs are critical, where American Opportunity is an outworn joke, where the ravages of racism are as real as the pavement, a free store means revolution." #FromTheArchives #ThisMonthInHistory #UnconditionalLove #GLIDEHistory #SFhistory #vintagephoto #throwbackthursday to #ColdWar-era GLIDE. There are still a reported 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world today, but together, in community, we can continue to demand nuclear disarmament and a peaceful future for the generations to come. GLIDE envisions and fights for this future every day. 
#GLIDEforDisarmament #FromTheArchives #GLIDEHistory #disarmament #vintagephoto Today marks 72 years after the horrific bombing of #Nagasaki, Japan at the end of WWII. GLIDE remembers the thousands of innocent people who tragically perished in the initial atomic blast as well as the many more thousands who suffered the physical and psychological symptoms of radiation exposure for the rest of their lives: the mothers who lost their babies, the communities ravaged by increased rates of cancer, the elderly survivors who have developed new forms of leukemia and face great pain in their old age. .

We remember them. There are still a reported 15,000 nuclear weapons in the world today, but together, in community, we can continue to demand nuclear disarmament and a peaceful future for the generations to come. GLIDE envisions and fights for this future every day.
