Listen to part one of the We Are Home: Tenderloin Community Quilt Project panel series, which will dive into an expansive discussion of the socio-emotional impact of place making, community building and home making. The panel will highlight perspectives of people with lived experience being unhoused or homeless and those who are community/home builders, and ask how these perspectives mobilize us towards making meaningful change. 


From Fall 2022 to Spring 2023, the ‘project hosted workshops throughout the Tenderloin. Individuals participated in creating unique quilt square panels to contribute to what will be a greater Tenderloin Community Quilt, which will be completed by Fall 2023. The workshops have engaged Delivering Innovation to Supportive Housing - San Francisco (DISH SF) permanent supportive housing residents, the Hospitality House Community Arts Program and Tenderloin Museum.


The We Are Home: Tenderloin Community Quilt Project is focused on amplifying the voices of people who have the lived experience of homelessness, and those that care for or live and work in community with unhoused neighbors. The panel series aims to expand the conversation with extended community and offer an opportunity for meaningful engagement and reflection. We Are Home: Tenderloin Community Quilt Project was created with support of California Humanities, Humanities for All Grant awarded Summer 2022.
