San Francisco Community Health Center is featured in an article by Direct Relief.  Reporter Talya Meyers writes, “In San Francisco’s Tenderloin district, where tech-industry wealth brushes up against some of the city’s most vulnerable communities, the San Francisco Community Health Center provides everything from lifesaving medications to hot meals for its patients.
