The mission of the Treasure Island Homeless Development Initiative (TIHDI, pronounced “tie-dye”) is to develop and implement exits from homelessness, and pathways for economic self-sufficiency for disadvantaged families and individuals residing in one of San Francisco’s newest neighborhoods, former Navy Base Treasure Island located in the San Francisco Bay. TIHDI collaborates the work of eight community-based organizations that provide residents and low income job seekers with the tools to transform their lives through affordable housing, work readiness, employment, asset building, and vital community and support services for youth and adults.

While TIHDI’s primary role has been as liaison, convener and community developer, TIHDI has also developed community and direct service programs to fill gaps in services on the island or to further our employment, housing and economic stability objectives. Since the base was decommissioned in 1997, TIHDI has endeavored to create a new San Francisco neighborhood that includes the services and supports found in other San Francisco neighborhoods. TIHDI also operates its own programs that help support the financial stability goals & health of its residents and low-income San Francisco job seekers.
