2022 POLICY AGENDA > Homelessness


sf.citi supports evidence-based approaches and organizations that directly serve and aim to eliminate homelessness in San Francisco—a crisis that affects us all. 

  • 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, housing subsidies, permanent supportive housing, and Governor Newsom’s Project Homekey Initiative. 
  • sf.citi supports innovative approaches by the City and its partners to holistically address the wide variety of issues presented to those experiencing homelessness, including but not limited to safe injection sites, enforcing and expanding conservatorship laws, the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing’s Online Navigation and Entry (ONE) system, Larkin Street Youth Services’ Transitional Aged Youth Housing center for young people experiencing homelessness, and the SF LGBT Center’s Host Homes program, which matches homeless youth with available families. 
  • sf.citi supports Mayor Breed’s Homelessness Recovery Plan and commitment to creating at least 6,000 placements in housing, shelters, and shelter-in-place (SIP) hotels for youth, families, and adults experiencing homelessness.
  • sf.citi recognizes the interconnective nature of mental health, addiction, and homelessness and supports comprehensive mental health care reform through measures such as Mental Health SF that will provide wrap-around services to support some of the City’s most vulnerable communities.  
  • sf.citi supports efforts to address and eliminate homelessness in San Francisco through a citywide approach and supports campaigns that house those experiencing homelessness in each district through evidence-based models of housing.
