Given the hot market, displacement is an issue that affects more than just housing in San Francisco, as some of our key arts and social services non-profits find themselves priced out of their communities. The public and private sectors are working hard to fight these pressures with innovative partnerships and city funds recently set aside to help these valued organizations.
