San Francisco, CA
The Gujral Community Fund is pleased to announce a grant to San Francisco’s Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP). Ash and Susan Gujral have been supporters of this valuable non-profit organization since 2015. Martha Ryan, Founder and Executive Director of HPP commented, “ We thank Ash Gujral and his wife Susan for their generous support. These funds will help to fulfill our mission by seizing the motivational opportunity created by pregnancy and parenthood, [and] join with families to help them recognize their strengths and trust in their capacity to transform their lives.”
HPP serves 4,000 families annually, providing a variety of programs and services to help San Francisco households become healthy, stable and self-sufficient. Founded in 1989, HPP first opened its doors in the closet of a homeless shelter located in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district to help provide prenatal care to women who otherwise would not receive it. Over the past three decades, HPP has become a dynamic agency with a broader mission: “in partnership with our families, break the cycle of childhood poverty.”
Ash Gujral, founder of the Gujral Community Fund, stated, “Homeless women face considerable barriers in accessing preventive health care, and for pregnant homeless women, that lack of access to care can put them and their children at risk. The Gujral Community Fund is proud to support the Homeless Prenatal Program, recognizing it as a community asset that makes San Francisco the compassionate city it is noted for.”
The mission of the Gujral Community Fund is to improve the lives of San Francisco families by contributing time and resources to organizations with the infrastructure and ability to make a positive impact in our community. We’re proud to support HPP’s important and impactful work on behalf of San Francisco families.
