In 1989, I wrote a grant to the San Francisco Foundation to fund a project that would address an unmet public health need – prenatal care for women who were pregnant and homeless. I called it the “Homeless Prenatal Program”. The San Francisco Foundation agreed to support the project and with a staff of three we served 72 women the first year. Twenty-five years later, our name remains, but, like the first children we helped care for, we have grown and matured. Our 90 staff members now serve 3,500 clients annually – a full six percent of all San Francisco families. We have evolved into a comprehensive Family Resource Center, providing a full-range of services for families ending poverty.
