NPs on the frontlines

Glide, situated in the heart of San Francisco’s gritty Tenderloin neighborhood, is a haven for the homeless. Outside the shelter’s door, though it is just before noon, a group of men and women line up to wait for a bed for the night or a hot meal. Some push shopping carts packed with their belongings and hold tattered blankets, neatly rolled up. They press their backs against the wall as they try to shield themselves from the gushing rain shower soaking the street.
