Early 2013 Update from DISH

Greetings, Friends!

We hope your year is off to a fantastic start! We are reaching out for your support today as we report on some exciting news at DISH.

Our tenants have given us a giant boost to start the year right in our Annual Tenant Satisfaction Survey. We’re proud to report a very positive 91% overall satisfaction rate with 88% of our tenants responding to the survey. We are humbled and encouraged by the positive feedback, and are eager to address issues where we can improve.

We know that our great results are the product of an incredibly dedicated team, which strives to provide the best customer service in the industry. In the mission to end homelessness in San Francisco, we continue giving our best to provide excellence with our property management services to San Francisco’s most vulnerable. We have a lot of dreams for ways to improve our buildings and services….here is where you come in!

  • Health and Wellness Fair (Fall)
  • Activity groups and classes
  • Thanksgiving community meals
  • December holiday meals
