SF AIDS Foundation moving to new offices

San Francisco AIDS Foundation is moving to a new building at 1035 Market Street, a half block west of its current location, the foundation announced today (Friday, January 21).

The new space enables the foundation to accommodate an expansion of client services, including the recent addition of former clients of New Leaf: Services for our Community.

That nonprofit, which provided mental health, substance abuse, and senior services to LGBTs, shut down last fall.

SFAF will open at the new location on February 1.

“Our address is changing but our mission remains the same – to end the HIV epidemic in the city where it began and, eventually, everywhere,” CEO Neil Giuliano said in a statement.  “Now we’re in a much stronger position to make that goal a reality.”

SFAF will occupy three floors in the newly renovated building in the mid-Market area, bringing together the majority of the agency’s services into one space.

“The open layout of the offices allows for greater collaboration across program and professional staff, which ultimately means higher-quality service and stronger advocacy for our clients,” the group stated.

Giuliano stated that the lease on the foundation’s current space was coming to a close, and they were able to take advantage of cheaper real estate prices (or “leverage the downturn in the real estate market,” as he put it)  to secure the new space.

The neighborhoods around SFAF’s offices are home to some of the city’s poorest residents. The city is attempting to revive the mid-Market area, which features a mix of low-price clothing shops and restaurants alongside many abandoned storefronts. SFAF’s new space is next to a new beauty school, while the huge Market Street Cinema strip club is just a few doors down.
