Here are three goals we have for 2017!

renovate_gymRenovate Our Gymnasium

TEL Hi’s gym is one of the most active spaces in our neighborhood! Our goal is to make it more inclusive and functional by adding a curtain that can be used to divide the gym into two separate spaces when needed. We also intend to refinish the wood floors, replace old windows, add “kid sized” basketball hoops and give this well-loved and well-worn space the updates it needs!


protect_envirnmentContinue to Help Protect the Environment

TEL HI is now one of ten nonprofits certified as a Green Business in San Francisco! Our goal is to become an even more sustainable organization by replacing the original doors and windows from the 1950’s construction of our building. Help us create a healthier,greener community for all to enjoy!


disney-magicHave Our Children Experience the Magic of Disneyland

Sending our kids to Disneyland has been an ongoing goal of ours. For many, this would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip that they otherwise would not have  the opportunity to experience. While it may be just a theme park to an adult, to a six year old, it’s a place where they can sail with pirates, meet fairy-tale princesses and explore faraway jungles! Help us give our children a summer experience they will remember forever!


sparklelikerubyContinue to Sparkle Like Ruby Gim

True to the precious stone she was named after,Ruby Gim was a rare and beautiful individual. For over 35 years she worked at TEL HI and was well known for her generosity and kind spirit. Ruby would often pay for taxi rides for seniors, bring meals to the home bound, and purchase groceries and small gifts for the people in her program that needed to be cheered up.Ruby passed away tragically in 2014 and an anonymous donation was made in Ruby’s name so that her acts of kindness would continue. Today, that fund is nearly depleted. It is our goal to replenish this  fund so that Ruby’s legacy of caring can live on!

It doesn’t matter if you give $25 or $25,000 (OK, it  matters a little…). In essence, you’ll help keep our lights on, the food hot, and the community a safer place.

How Your Donation Is Used

Your donation will directly impact the quality of life for the people who depend on TEL HI every day. If you want, you may specify a specific program that you would like 100 percent of your donation to support. But for all donations, specific and general, you can rest assured that TEL HI uses our funding wisely and directs it to where it’s needed most.
