Here in San Francisco, it’s a neighborhood home to a dozen social service agencies, low-rent residential hotels, or </span>SROs<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, and thousands of low-income – and-no-income – residents. Premature deaths from HIV/AIDS, heart disease, and complications from substance use and abuse mark the lives of many in the Tenderloin. It’s a part of the city known for open drug use. A place many people avoid and one where individual lives can be easily forgotten.</span></p><p> Tue, 16 Jul 2013 00:46:02 +0000 Laura Flynn 30160 at http://kalw.org Lives of the Tenderloin remembered The Sharing Economy: San Francisco's roving tailor http://kalw.org/post/sharing-economy-san-franciscos-roving-tailor <p>The door to the <a href="http://www.luggagestoregallery.org/">Luggage Store Annex</a> in San Francisco&#39;s Tenderloin district is unlocked on the 15th of each month, rain or shine, fog or wind, and a converted tamale cart is rolled onto the sidewalk.
