HISTORY OF THE TECH LAB

The TTL is a state-of-the-art technology training center with 36 drop-in computer work-stations; a wide range of basic, intermediate, and workshop style computer classes; one-on-one technology training; computer repair sessions, and other special events.

 

Established in 2008, the Tenderloin Technology Lab (TTL) emerged in response to a critical need for technology training and digital access for our city's most vulnerable members. Formed as a partnership between St. Anthony's Foundation (SAF) and San Francisco Network Ministries (SFNM), this collaboration brought together nearly 100 years of experience in the Tenderloin working alongside our poorest brothers and sisters to inspire health, hope, and human dignity. In September 2013, St. Anthony's Foundation assumed full control of Tenderloin Technology Lab.

 

All services offered at the Tenderloin Technology Lab are free.
