When Nick lost his job of 27 years, his devastation led to anxiety and depression. Soon after, he lost his family and his home. Nick’s depression led him to stop eating, and the result of starvation put him in the hospital for five days. He was discharged two days before Thanksgiving with nowhere to go. That’s when he came to Cityteam.
Nick could only get a few bites of turkey down on Thanksgiving. It would be weeks before he could eat a complete meal. So instead of enjoying the feast himself, he helped provide the meal for others. “We served food all day long,” he said. “It made me feel good to help other people.”
Nick found the will, faith, and practical tools to recover his health, grieve the loss of his family and start his life over at Cityteam. “I’m deeply grateful to Cityteam. If I had not been accepted here, I would have died out there.”Read More Stories

Cityteam San Francisco is located in the heart of the Tenderloin, and is one of the only shelters, feeding and recovery programs south of Market. Volunteers and donors often tell me that they didn’t realize how much Cityteam does to help homeless people on the streets, the elderly that live in SROs and those suffering from addiction.
Yes, San Francisco’s homeless crisis and lack of affordable housing is at an all time high, but we have a BIG God and nothing is impossible with Him. We have been blessed to witness countless lives changed. We are grateful to local partners, donors and volunteers that have a heart for serving those in need with dignity and grace.
