Welcome to TEL HI

We bring people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds together, and we try to help everyone in a bunch of different ways. You’ll find a broad range of programs and services in a safe, stable “home away from home,” which is something we’ve offered to the community for well over a century. Please take a look around. We’re excited to celebrate our 130th anniversary this year. And we’re looking forward to serving the San Francisco community for the next 130 years!
