All cities have them, the areas you are supposed to stay away from. The districts that have some invisible line of poverty that you can just feel when you cross it. Though completely unique and strangely beautiful San Francisco is no different; the Tenderloin in SF is just this.
The area attracts the homeless, the addicts, and houses the shut-ins forming it into a place of great need. And though the city and government offer many social and medical services for these hurting people, there is a place, run completely free of charge, that cares for, heals, and prays for those hurting in the Tenderloin.
This holistic Health & Wellness Center is in the heart of the Tenderloin.
They care for all who walk-in and regularly bring in specialists, such as dentists, optometrists, cardiologists; but they also make house calls to the thousands that are shut-ins within the hundreds of SRO (single room occupancy) buildings of the Tenderloin.
