In Harm’s Way Pt.1: Street Outreach in San Francisco

The story was originally published in KALW with support from our 2023 Center for Health Journalism California Health Equity Fellowship.


This story aired in the July 13, 2023 episode of Crosscurrents.

In the first installment of 'In Harm's Way: Workers Battle the Overdose Crisis', we tag along with an outreach manager who worked at the Tenderloin Linkage Center, and a former guest at the center who wishes more people considered the humanity of people who are unhoused and struggling with addiction.

He would have been inside our place happy, comfortable, chill, eating, sleeping, building community, art groups, music groups, laughing. And now he's crying alone
