2018 Pride Run Beneficiary

Project Homeless Connect

Project Homeless Connect excels in connecting the most vulnerable San Franciscans to vital resources throughout the city. At their one-stop shop events and in their office every day, they link participants to difficult-to-obtain services including medical, dental and vision care, and employment assistance. By mobilizing city and community agencies, as well as thousands of volunteers, they are able to ensure that our participants receive holistic care in a dignified setting. Learn more:

Giving back to the community

Each year, the members of the San Francisco FrontRunners nominate and select Bay Area charities serving the LGBTQ and greater community to be the recipient of the net proceeds from the annual Pride Run and Sponsorship dollars.
