Families Getting what they need
Families Getting What they Need
 
 

Many of TNDC’s Tenderloin After-School Program parents are forced to raise their children in overcrowded housing with no access to outdoor play space, live in unsafe conditions, lack access to education and other resources, and face language and immigration barriers, among others.

For these families, TASP is an invaluable resource: a safe place that helps their children do better in school; make friends; develop self-esteem; and gain a sense of hope about their futures. TASP offers a holistic, integrated curriculum which includes academic support, cultural appreciation, and recreation to support the development and growth of children in all areas of their lives.

Muslim
Tenant Focus: Being Muslim in the Tenderloin
 
 

In the sunlit Curran House courtyard, 13-year old Nada Kaid sits with her mother, Nabihah.

Muslims from Yemen, poorest of the Arab countries, they wear traditional dress.  Away from Curran House, it causes them some grief.  Nabihah’s chador is a black robe that covers all but her face and hands.  Nada wears separates of lighter dark colors, highlighted by her blue hijab, a scarf.  As with her mother, only face and hands show, a sign of devout modesty in Islam that, accompanied by a lowered gaze, commands respect among believers.

TASP Girls
Vignettes From Past TASP Tours
 
 

TASP’s College Tour to New Orleans was a great success both in terms of exposure to college campuses and meaningful experiences in a new city.

Following the tour, two participants sat down and shared some of the impacts that this College Tour had on their lives. Participant names have been changed.

Jaimee is 18 and grew up going to school in the Tenderloin neighborhood, and has been attending TASP since she was five years old. She is a recent graduate of Wallenberg Alternative High School, and this fall will start at Mount Holyoke, where she has been accepted on a full scholarship. She is the first person in her family to pursue a college education, so she was especially excited to be part of the College Tour. She knew that by participating on the tour she would get a strong sense of college life that her family and friends could not provide.

Dolby
Partner Focus: Dolby Laboratories, Inc
 
 

In 2014, Dolby relocated its headquarters to 1275 Market Street in the mid-market area adjacent to the Tenderloin.

Eager to learn more about their neighborhood and how Dolby could help make it an even better place to live and work, the community relations team at Dolby volunteered its employees to work at the Tenderloin People’s Community Garden.
