Seated Massage

Therapeutic caring touch is the heart and foundation of CTI’s history and mission. CTI considers itself to be one of the many vital social service agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area working in collaboration with those who provide food, shelter and healthcare to members in our community that are experiencing homelessness or who are marginally housed. We work to address an un-met need: the need for love, community, and empowerment by addressing the deep spiritual and emotional needs of our community and working with trauma in a way that allows for trust and resilience to grow.

Special Events

Four Corner Friday

Every first Friday of each month from 3-4:30pm, Hospitality House joins neighborhood community partners like DeMarillac Academy, Curry Senior Center, Larkin Street Services, and other businesses and non-profits to activate the street corners of our neighborhood. Come join the fun at the next 4 Corner Friday, in front of Hospitality House at 290 Turk. There will be chair massages offered by the Care Through Touch Institute, art activities, info tables, popcorn and other treats, and musical tributes!

 

Project Homeless Connect

CTI is a regular participant at Project Homeless Connect (PHC). Every other month, CTI joins with over 1500 individual community volunteers quarterly to provide health and human services to the homeless and marginalized people of San Francisco. In this way, CTI continues to strengthen its connections with local service agencies that share our commitment to caring for those who reside in and frequent the streets of San Francisco’s poorest neighborhoods. The massage chairs of CTI practitioners are always filled at this day-long event!
