PREVIEW - S01 - The Tenderloin

Home

EWelcome to THE INTERSECTION and to the corner of Golden Gate Ave and Leavenworth St in the Tenderloin. While the neighborhood has the highest density of kids and seniors in San Francisco, it's associated more with its many homeless residents. We'll hear from a woman who sleeps in a tent—and cooks—on the sidewalks. And another woman who found a home in an innovative supportive housing project just steps away from the corner.
