San Francisco: Because Justice Matters

What is BJM?

Because Justice Matters began as a simple dream to address injustice faced by women in San Francisco. Founder, Ruthie Kim, had been living and working in the Tenderloin district of the city for 8 years, witnessing the exploitation and isolation of the women she was reaching.


Towards the end of 2008, they launched their first Monday manicure outreach on a small table on the sidewalk and began developing outreach to women and their families. Since then BJM's services have grown to include street outreach, case management, ESL, parenting classes, mother’s breakfast and much more.

BJM believes in real relationships built over time, with a commitment to help women make choices that build better lives for them and their families.
