San Francisco is experiencing a shelter shortage crisis with over 100 encampments on our streets. 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 transition support at existing 90-day shelters.
