Efforts to address and eliminate homelessness in San Francisco

As a San Francisco-based organization, sf.citi supports efforts that address and aim to eliminate homelessness—a crisis that affects all San Franciscans and visitors alike. 

  • sf.citi believes in the right to shelter for all San Franciscans and those experiencing homelessness through the expansion of shelter availability, step-housing units, homeless housing units, and housing subsidies.
  • sf.citi supports creative approaches by the City and its partners in how they handle the wide variety of issues presented to those experiencing homelessness, including but not limited to safe injection sites, expanded conservatorship laws, the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing’s Online Navigation and Entry (ONE) system, and partnerships such as the one between Larkin Street Youth Services and Goodwill to implement the first Transitional Aged Youth Housing center for young people experiencing homelessness.
  • sf.citi supports Mayor Breed’s agenda on homelessness to ensure the City has the resources and effective policies in place to house and provide services to all residents experiencing homelessness.
  • sf.citi recognizes the nexus between mental health, addiction, and homelessness and supports comprehensive mental health care reform through measures like Mental Health SF, which will provide wrap-around services to support some of the City’s most vulnerable.
  • sf.citi supports efforts to address and eliminate homelessness in San Francisco through a citywide approach, including initiatives to build navigation centers in each district and supporting the All In campaign to house those experiencing homelessness in each district through evidence-based models of housing.
