Growing Demand Forces “Project Open Hand” to Cut Costs
Project Open Hand, a San Francisco nonprofit helping to feed the seriously ill and those living with HIV/AIDS, will make some major cuts in the coming months to bridge a financial gap, though it doesn’t expect the changes to affect its services, The San Francisco Examiner reports. The organization is estimating a $728,000 deficit in a $9.8 million budget. One way it hopes to trim costs is by changing services for some clients. People with HIV/AIDS who can still cook for themselves will have to choose between two services previously provided to all clients: home-delivered meals or transportation to and from the organization’s grocery center. Project Open Hand has increased its meal production by 10 percent in the past year because of an increase in clients. Growing demand caused the funding deficit, the group said, adding that despite the current challenges no client will be turned away.
