From Our Editors

Compass Family Services was established in 1914 under the name Travelers' Aid San Francisco to assist newcomers who were drawn to the city by the spectacle of the 1915 World's Fair. By the time it became Compass Family Services in 1995, its mission had evolved drastically to fit the city's changing needs. In that 80-year period, it had provided social services to refugees, military personnel, and transient adults. In the 1980s, it began focusing on homeless families and sought to help them attain stability, a mission that continues today.

Compass's six primary programs support more than 3,000 parents and children every year with a comprehensive array of services. Compass Connecting Point, Family Shelter, and Clara House provide people with places to live ranging from overnight stays to two-year transitional housing. Compass SF Home helps people stay in their houses with rent subsidies; the Compass Children's Center organizes child development and educational activities; and the Compass Family Resource Center works with both parents and children to ensure they maintain a strong bond and healthy relationship.

San Francisco Guide

San Francisco residents in need of diversion should grab an SF guide catering to people who actually live in the city. Sometimes, residents just aren't aware of the hidden gems and deals that are available in their own backyards, but a quick point in the right direction can make all the difference.

For people with foodie sensibilities who find it hard to make the time to actually cook, one of the best things to do in San Francisco is to head down to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and load up on ingredients. There's nothing like grabbing a cup of coffee on a Saturday morning before heading over to the Ferry Building and joining in the gastronomical frenzy. Get there early to mingle with other food-obsessed souls and top chefs as they check out tasty treats such as organic Portobello mushrooms and seasonal vegetables. Exotic chocolates and artisanal cheeses tempt on all sides.

Another key spot in a practical guide to San Francisco must be Hayes Valley. This is the go-to hangout spot for the artsy crowd, and anyone looking to grab a quick latte or shop in one of the area's funky boutiques. Octavia Boulevard is the area's main strip and has recently undergone a major renovation, making it even more of an attraction. Some people think that the area has lost some of its edge now that it's become more popular, but that hasn't stopped the diehards from coming down to check out their favorite shops.

If a beach is what is needed, locals can avoid the crowds at Fisherman's Wharf by heading over to Breezy Baker Beach. This beach has stunning ocean and bridge views. Anyone looking for even more privacy would do well to check out the beautiful and secluded China Beach.
