In the spring of 2000, Francis Ford Coppola, along with a group of residents and merchants of North Beach in San Francisco, joined together to discuss the rise of homelessness in their neighborhood. North Beach Citizens was born in January 2001 staffed only with volunteers. Within one month, North Beach Citizens was working with 50 homeless citizens.
Each year, North Beach Citizens honors a member of the community who was integral in the success of the organization, via a fundraising dinner celebration. This year’s event will be held virtually for the first time. And – the 2020 honoree truly deserves the recognition. Since 2003, Kristie Fairchild has served as the Executive Director of North Beach Citizens. With Fairchild at the helm, North Beach Citizens has helped more than 3,000 homeless and low-income people across San Francisco find and stay in housing, and rebuild their lives, all within an atmosphere of trust, integrity, and respect.
We are proud and honored to be part of this important event honoring Kristie. Click here for information.
