A Little Green in the Heart of the City
Thoreau Centers for Sustainability are green nonprofit centers that house more than 70 nonprofit organizations in San Francisco and New York. The centers serve as models to others interested in starting similar real-estate endeavors.
Thoreau Centers for Sustainability are operated by Tides, one of its initiatives to create, operate and promote sustainable workspace for nonprofits and strengthen nonprofit capacity in the real estate arena.
The Tides vision is a world of broadly shared economic opportunity, robust democratic processes and the opportunity to live in a healthy and sustainable environment where human rights are preserved and protected.
