OUR MISSION & accomplishments
Since founding SFHC in San Francisco in 2015, we have worked towards our mission to end the crisis conditions of street homelessness by:
Providing direct services at encampments (including portapotties, trash removal, mobile sleeping cabins, linkage to service providers, etc.)
Organizing with local, regional, and state-level stakeholders to develop actionable solutions, including currently/formerly unsheltered residents, impacted neighbors, service/advocacy organizations, and government officials; and
Developing and piloting the "Safe Organized Spaces" transitional village framework for activating underutilized public/private land with community-integrated transitional villages.
our vision & current efforts
SFHC is advocating for the Safe Organized Spaces model for transitional villages in San Francisco and throughout California. We are continuously:
Updating the SOS policy toolkit and framework with policy and operations documents and best practices and sharing resources with statewide allies;
Advocating for SOS transitional village pilots in San Francisco;
Building a local, regional, statewide, and national network of advocates, service providers, policy experts, and government officials;
Signature gathering and outreach for the SOS petition; and
Seeking partnerships with funders to support the activation of SOS pilots throughout California
SFHC is looking to raise up to $12,000 in the short term to have a year's worth of basic income at $1,000/month for the FT position of Director. SFHC has raised just over $90,000 since its founding in 2015, and the majority of that income been spent on programmatic and operating expenses—view a recent Profit and Loss statement prepared by our fiscal sponsor, Intersection for the Arts.
