There’s another San Franciscan profile that we absolutely loved at I live here: SF: Coleen who works as an Advocacy Coordinator at the St. Anthony Foundation. She’s going to disarm you from the first paragraph:
I want to tell you about The Tenderloin. My version of the Tenderloin. The Tenderloin can be a rough place, but I see a lot of little miracles here every day. I certainly do not want to romanticize the difficult things that the people of the Tenderloin have to deal with. But, I have seen a lot of beauty here, a lot of kindness, I have seen heartbreak and I have seen joy.
