Filmed in NOPA: "Inside Looking Out" Video for Community Housing Partnership

The Zygmundt-Arendt House for formerly homeless seniors -- located in the North Panhandle at the intersection of Broderick and Golden Gate -- serves as the site for "Inside Looking Out," a sweet bit of mini-story-telling about homelessness in the city. The 30-second commercial headlines the Community Housing Partnership's (CHP) new YouTube channel.

CHP is a San Francisco-based non-profit with a record of developing effective models for reducing homelessness. In a press release today, Gail Gilman, CHP executive director, said she hopes the video will increase awareness about homelessness and highlight effective solutions to "one of our country's most troubling issues." CHP encourages viewers to share the new video with friends and become more engaged with solutions to homelessness.

The Zygmundt-Arendt House is CHP's newest facility with 47 units in a new building at the former site of Florence Crittenton Services. BIKE NOPA covered its open house in June. The Arendt House also holds the distinction of being the greenest, most sustainable building in the neighborhood. With its bay windows and articulated exterior, the three and four story structure also serves as an excellent example of contextual design reflecting features of neighborhood architecture.
