LET LOVE LEAD!

GLIDE is a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization.

More Than 50 Years of Unconditional Love

GLIDE has been serving the people of the Tenderloin and San Francisco since 1963. As a social justice movement, social service provider and spiritual community, GLIDE offers individual and collective transformation through compassionate, sustained, comprehensive care to all in need.

On a Mission to Alleviate Suffering & Stabilize Lives

GLIDE reaches those most in need, providing food, housing assistance, healthcare, and family services. We meet basic needs, stabilize lives, create pathways out of poverty, and work for systemic change. Our work is grounded in our values of radical inclusivity, unconditional love, truth telling, and celebration. We work on the front lines of poverty, look everyone in the eye, turn no one away, and transform lives.

GLIDE Voices

Meet members of the GLIDE community through their stories and testimonials.

Women Are Moving

by Janice Mirikitani There are women who are moving.There are women who have said what must be done:            Our grandmothers who carried us on their shoulders,            wove memories of prisons/canefields/refugee camps    without self pity.            Our mothers/mine who stood in a River of Silence            snuffed her dreams and stilled her life, incarcerated in            World War II internment camps,
