San Francisco is experiencing a shelter/affordable housing shortage crisis with unhealthy and unsafe conditions in neighborhood encampments. We need humane, cost-effective, and outcomes-driven strategies NOW!
SFHC organizes with encampment residents, neighbors, community stakeholders, and local government to:
- Assess and address health, sanitation, safety, and community access conditions at encampments [until adequate shelter/housing alternatives are available];
Pilot transitional sleep & storage shelters [until adequate shelter/housing alternatives are available];
Support transition from encampments through the development of onsite transition services, transitional villages, safe park programs, and additional transition support at existing 90-day shelters.
