Tiny House Movement Meet Up
Sunday, March 13
11:00AM - 12:00PM
110 E 2nd St
As more Americans fall into debt and dedicate the bulk of their income to home ownership, the Tiny House Movement seeks to bring dignity to small, low-cost spaces as a way to live a downsized lifestyle without sacrificing comfort, aesthetics, or dignity. With Tiny Homes measuring approximately the same size as a standard SRO (roughly 100-400 square feet), it has been proven that the same amenities and design plans that have curated this movement can fit within the same confines as SRO apartment spaces. Using this movement as the catalyst, below-market housing can finally be designed with the same care and dignity that its population deserves.

Tiffany Apczynski is the Director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Zendesk, a tech company located in San Francisco's Tenderloin, which boasts the city's highest level of crime, poverty, and densest concentration of SRO housing. Zendesk moved to the Tenderloin in 2011 as part of a tax incentive to keep tech companies from leaving the city. It was the first tech company to move to the neighborhood and required to design and execute a Community Benefits Agreement. Apczynski wrote San Francisco's very first Community Benefits Agreement, which outlines Zendesk's commitments to reinvest in the neighborhood. That agreement has been held up as the "gold standard" and continues to keep the company insulated from the tech backlash that has swept over the city for the last several years.Hide the rest
