Bread & Roses serves 125 social service institutions throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. We do our best to keep a balance as we decide when and where to add more performances and have developed a comprehensive selection process for adding new facilities. Audience age, ethnicity, average length of stay and other criteria are all carefully considered, along with availability of adequate space and supportive staff at the facility. We also maintain a waiting list for facilities interested in receiving our services. All our daily shows are produced by staff with the help of volunteer performers and hosts.
Bread & Roses institutional shows are not open to the public; however, we invite our supporters to contact us to make special arrangements to attend a show. We are always eager to share with you firsthand the impact your support has on those we serve!
