Dear ATC Community,
After spending 18 years at 333 Valencia Street, At The Crossroads is moving.
This whole process began in early 2015, when our office building was sold and we discovered that our lease would not be renewed. After months of searching for a new office, we finally found a fantastic, long-term, low-cost home at 167 Jessie Street! This is a shell space that requires a total build-out, which means that we get the rare opportunity to design the office around our specific needs. It also means, however, that it won’t be ready until construction is finished in late 2017.
At the end of September, ATC is moving to our interim office at 38 Mason Street in downtown San Francisco. It’s a bittersweet moment for our organization, because we have so much history at 333 Valencia Street. We began in an office that is now our storage room. We started with two people, and now we’re a staff of 14. Over the years, we worked with over 7,500 youth, and for some of them, this office was the most stable space they had ever known in their lives. 333 Valencia Street has been a home to our clients, staff, and entire community for nearly two decades.
38 Mason Street will be our interim office until our long-term home is finished. It’s a beautiful space that’s more than double our current size, which will enable our organization to grow. Its location downtown will put us much closer to the majority of our clients, and will enhance our work with our youth. It’s also centrally located near BART and several bus lines, making our office more accessible for clients and staff alike. We are very grateful to Lighthouse Public Affairs for subleasing this space to us at a significant discount; this wouldn’t be possible without their generosity.
Please update your records if you ever send us anything by mail. Our new address is:
At The Crossroads
38 Mason Street
San Francisco, CA 94102
While we’re sad to say goodbye to the place that has seen us and our clients through many ups and downs, we’re also really excited for what the future holds for ATC. Our organization is entering a new era of change and growth, and this is a huge first step.
We look forward to having you see our new space in the coming months!
Executive Director, At The Crossroads
