Discover Something Unexpected

Family Fun fest - Social (1).png

The smell of hot buttered popcorn and squeals of delight from the bounce house fill the air.  Faces painted with butterflies, stars and superheroes dart back and forth from carnival game to carnival game.  This is no ordinary Saturday in the Tenderloin.  This is the annual Family Fun Fest, sponsored by Because Justice Matters and YWAM San Francisco.  This is a day where kids can be kids, families can be families and the community that faces so much adversity can be a community that celebrates life.  We believe that pathways to brighter futures are built on days like this by people who believe in better things for children and families in the Tenderloin. 

The Family Fun Fest is a chance to celebrate another side of the Tenderloin, the side that is filled with authenticity, intentionality, and creativity!
