There are thousands of people living in crisis conditions on the streets of San Francisco — and throughout California. Each of these individuals need a safe organized space to belong on their pathway to healing and housing.

Safe Organized Spaces (SOS) are transitional villages administered by service provider organizations, that:
Meet California State codes for emergency shelter response; 
Operate in partnership with property owners, neighbors, village participants, & service providers in coordination with City services;
Activate underutilized public/private land with interim permits, license agreements, insurance, baseline health and safety standards, a built-in process for multi-stakeholder input & evaluation, community benefits, and site-specific agreements. 

Since 2015, the SOS policy and operations framework has been developed and piloted by the Saint Francis Homelessness Challenge with participation and input from currently/formerly unsheltered residents, service providers, property owners, and impacted neighbors. Learn more at SaintFrancisChallenge.org.
