For more than four decades, Reverend Glenda Hope has worked in San Francisco's troubled Tenderloin district, ministering to the poor, the homeless and prostitutes trying to get off the streets. She has conducted more than 1,000 memorial services for Tenderloin residents and homeless people from around the city. As part of our First Person series profiling notable people in the Bay Area, we'll talk with the 77-year old minister who has just retired from her work with San Francisco Network Ministries.

Host: Michael Krasny
