Founded in 1967, Central City Hospitality House is a progressive, community-based organization located in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood that provides opportunities and resources for personal growth and self-determination to homeless people and neighborhood residents. Our mission is to build community strength by advocating policies and rendering services which foster self-sufficiency and cultural enrichment.

Hospitality House has five programs. The Tenderloin Self-Help Center and Sixth Street Self-Help Center are community centers that provide a range of emergency and support services using a low-threshold, peer-based, self-help model. In addition to housing, case management, harm reduction, mental health support, and employment services, the Centers offer opportunities for civic engagement, community involvement, and socialization. The Shelter Program is a small men’s dormitory that provides basic emergency shelter as well as one-on-one case management and counseling to assist people in moving into permanent housing and addressing other issues creating barriers to stability and self-sufficiency. The Community Arts Program is a unique space where individuals can create, house and sell artwork, offering open studio hours, workshops, a creative writing class, and an opportunity for artists to exhibit and sell their work.  The Community Building Program includes a peer volunteer training program, employment services, program activities, and the Healing, Organizing & Leadership Development Program which is a peer internship community organizing program for participants impacted by trauma.  All programs work together to provide a range of support, resources, and opportunities for people to achieve stability and self-sufficiency.
