In San Francisco’s Tenderloin district, everyone has a story to tell.

Long home to the city’s homeless and mentally ill, the Tenderloin also pulses with immigrants upended by turmoil in their native country. Here, among the single-occupancy hotels, a family of five can squeeze into two small rooms and make a fresh start. This is the poorest and most densely packed neighborhood in San Francisco. It also has the highest concentration of children under 18 anywhere in the city.

“Most of us were born in the Tenderloin, but our parents and grandparents, our aunts and uncles were not,” begins Naim, a teen leader at the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco-Tenderloin Clubhouse.
