Project Homeless Connect strengthens and utilizes collaborations with city agencies, businesses, and organizations to provide comprehensive holistic services, both at service events and through continued care, for those who are at risk of becoming homeless, are currently homeless or are transitioning from shelter to permanent housing. Since our founding in 2004, we have partnered with city leaders, community-based organizations, and volunteers from across the Bay Area to bring essential services to people living on the streets. These collaborations are at the heart of what we do.

Emerging from the movement to end violence against women, the San Francisco Domestic Violence Consortium is dedicated to eliminating domestic violence and ensuring the basic rights of safety, self-determination and well-being to victims and survivors of domestic violence and their children.

Services for Domestic Violence Survivors

Every year, more than 2,000 survivors access our services for achieving violence-free lives. The St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco’s Riley Center offers safe and confidential comprehensive services to survivors of domestic violence, along with their children, from the point of crisis to a woman’s achievement of self-sufficiency.

Our services also include a Community Office that offers drop-in services, support groups, community education and follow-up support to former residents of our residential programs.

Founded in 1967 in response to the large influx of homeless LGBT youth in the Tenderloin, Hospitality House has a long history developing peer-based and culturally appropriate programs for the communities we serve. Today, Hospitality House serves primarily homeless and poor adult residents of the Tenderloin, Sixth Street Corridor, and Mid-Market neighborhoods. Our services benefit the city by alleviating the strain on emergency services, creating a positive impact, raising the quality of life for all residents, and making the neighborhoods we serve healthy and rich with diversity and culture
Episcopal Community Services is providing services at the Navigation Center, a pilot program located at a temporary site at 1950 Mission St., adjacent to the bustling plaza at 16th and Mission streets. It is comprised of single-story buildings with dormitory-style living quarters, shower and bathroom facilities, laundry facilities, counseling offices, and a 24-hour dining room. The Navigation Center is designed to help homeless people, many living in encampments, who have stayed out of shelters because they don’t want to be separated from a partner, friends, or even their dog, to find permanent housing. The center is open 24 hours a day, but it does not just provide an alternative spot to pitch a tent. By moving people in as a group, it is thought they will trust the process more than many do in shelters. Homeless individuals and groups will be able to get their immediate needs met and receive one-on-one counseling, with the goal of creating stability in their lives. No more than 75 people will be assisted at any one time, and three services coordinators will be on the grounds at all times. The center will connect people with social services and long-term housing or, if the individuals wish, help them access Homeward Bound, a city program that buys a bus ticket home. Episcopal Community Services is the lead service provider overseeing the center with the city’s Human Services Agency and has the support of a dozen collaborating agencies so far, including the Health Department and Project Homeless Connect. The San Francisco Office of the Controller has created reports regarding the Navigation Center. To learn more about how the Navigation Center runs, its successes, and its performance thus far, check out the reports below!
The Sanctuary (201 Eighth Street), formerly The Episcopal Sanctuary, provides emergency shelter to homeless adults who register through the City of San Francisco. The Sanctuary is a 24-hour facility and provides two meals a day to shelter residents. ECS collaborates with the nursing school of San Francisco State University and SFSU nursing students and faculty offer drop-in clinic hours for Sanctuary residents three days a week. ECS's behavioral health team, known as SF START, also provides behavioral health services for residents at The Sanctuary and other San Francisco shelters. Many Sanctuary clients are homeless seniors. Seniors have designated shelter beds and earlier access in order to provide extra time and space for evening preparations. Homeless seniors often have chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, and the Sanctuary works to accommodate their nutritional needs in the breakfast and dinner meals. During the day, homeless seniors can enjoy programs and a hot lunch at the ECS Senior Center.
ECS's Next Door Shelter (1001 Polk Street) provides safe, 24-hour access to shelter for unhoused adults in San Francisco. Next Door Shelter has 334 beds with separate sections for men and women. Residents receive two meals daily. They can also access case management and mental health services through ECS’s San Francisco Shelter Treatment Access and Resources Team (SF START). Next Door includes beds reserved for veterans and persons awaiting admission to community-based treatment programs. Many of those who stay at Next Door are addressing substance abuse problems, and some are coping with mental health issues and chronic medical conditions. Despite challenges, many shelter residents are able to move into housing as affordable units or other options such as residential treatment become available.
