Do what's necessary. Do what's possible. Innovate for the greater good.
Challenge yourself and your city to develop and implement humane, outcomes-driven, and cost-effective interim strategies to address our encampment and shelter/housing shortage crisis.
Thanks for taking the time to learn about the Saint Francis Homelessness Challenge. SFHC organizes with encampment residents, neighbors, volunteers, & City services to: (1) Assess and address health, sanitation, & safety conditions to increase livability and reduce pain points for people who live (or work) in and near encampments until adequate shelter/housing options are developed; and (2) Develop, pilot, and lobby for interim secure shelter structures & transitional villages that support the current programming and needs of the City/Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (DHSH)
We'll get started by sharing facts with you about the current homelessness landscape in San Francisco. Read through them one by one and let us know how knowledgable you were about each stat before reading it here.
