Cambridge Hotel Print


About this building:
Address: 473 Ellis
Phone: 415-928-0905

With the Central City Hospitality House as a co-developer, the Cambridge evolved into Chinatown CDC’s first homeless housing development, providing the homeless with the means to achieve self-sufficiency through both permanent housing and support services. Services for residents include employment counseling, job referrals, education, and skills development. The Cambridge had been a tourist hotel and some businesses in the Tenderloin protested its use as a special needs housing project, which highlighted the tension in the neighborhood between desires to revitalize the community economically and to meet the housing needs of Tenderloin and broader San Francisco residents.  The Cambridge was one of the first homeless housing developments in San Francisco.
