For more than five decades, GLIDE has served as a social justice movement, social service provider and spiritual community dedicated to strengthening communities and transforming lives. Located in San Francisco’s culturally vibrant but poverty-stricken Tenderloin neighborhood, GLIDE addresses the needs of, and advocates for, the most vulnerable and marginalized individuals and families.


Under the leadership of President and CEO Karen Hanrahan, GLIDE is building on the 50-year legacy of Co-Founders Rev. Cecil Williams and Janice Mirikitani, to deepen GLIDE’s impact and extend its reach to thousands of people in need. Through a new generation of comprehensive services that go beyond meeting basic needs, as well as fearless advocacy and spiritual connection, GLIDE remains a powerful beacon of hope for a healthier, more just and inclusive city.
