Addressing Homelessness

  • San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)



For many, the Bay Area is where dreams come true. However, as a result of growth, constant change and incredible demand for space and services, our infrastructure fails to support our whole community - especially those who find themselves without consistent access to shelter and the security and peace of mind that a home provides. 

Gather around the Shalon table to discuss with experts, advocates and engaged members of the community to discover ways to have an impact on The Bay Area's homeless population. 

Over a chef-prepared, gourmet meal, we'll ask questions, brainstorm and commit to taking action. Connect with old and new friends as we discover ideas and empower ourselves and others.
