GLIDE, in conjunction with community partners The Healing Well, La Cocina, YWAM San Francisco and Simply the Basics, will host a Womxn's Wellness Fair. The event is meant to celebrate and serve all unhoused, and housed women-identified residents in the Tenderloin. The Womxn's Wellness Fair takes place from 10 am to 2 pm on Friday May 7, 2021 in the Tenderloin Community Resource Hub at Ellis Street and Taylor, in front of GLIDE. Covering this event is a great way to kick off Mother's Day weekend.
Womxn's Wellness Fair activities include fellowship, fun, food, art, resources, music, yoga and tai chi classes, acupuncture, carnival games, bingo and more. Event participants can access resources like hygiene products, mental health support services, harm reduction kits, free snack bags and $5 vouchers for the newly opened La Cocina Marketplace. The fair is part of ongoing outreach efforts by GLIDE's Women's Center to support woman who are living on the street, in an unstable housing situation, or need social support.
"Our Women's Center provides a safe haven for women on the road to recovery from trauma, violence and isolation, said GLIDE President and CEO Karen Hanrahan. "Through our essential support services, GLIDE helps women, and their families stabilize their lives and thrive."
