THE STORY:

Superhero Events wrote -

In the early 1980s, residents, businesspeople, and social service providers in San Francisco’s Polk Gulch began to notice that there were many young people who were living on the streets in their neighborhood. These kids had nowhere to live since, for whatever reason, these kids’ families could not care for them. They also had no way to survive without resorting to theft, prostitution, or the drug trade. So in 1984, members of the community decided to take action and they opened a Drop-In Center on Larkin Street to help these homeless youth find a supportive, safe place, off the streets of San Francisco.

Today, what was once the original Larkin Street Drop-In Center, has grown into the 25 youth programs delivered over 13 sites now operated by Larkin Street Youth Services. We give youth more than just temporary respite from life on the streets. We give them the tools they need—through housing, medical care, education, and job training—to permanently reclaim their lives.
