Glenda Hope has had a lasting impact on San Francisco. One minister dubbed her the "Saint of the Tenderloin." In 1972 she founded the San Francisco Network Ministries, a charity organization benefiting the homeless and underserved and which she led until 2013. She is retired from that role but still active in community organizing.
