Adult Permanent Supportive Housing

HSH administers locally and federally funded supportive housing to provide long-term affordable housing with on-site social services to people exiting chronic homelessness. San Francisco’s adult supportive housing programs offer housing to very low-income homeless adults and couples without custody of children.  Some of the units in this portfolio are in SRO hotels that have been renovated by their owners and are managed by non-profit organizations that provide property management and supportive services.  Other housing in this portfolio is provided in apartment buildings that offer housing to adults that meet the specific eligibility requirements of each building.

All referrals to HSH’s permanent supportive housing are managed through Coordinated Entry. Adults without children who are experiencing homelessness and seeking permanent supportive housing are encouraged to participate in the Problem Solving and Coordinated Entry process by visiting an Adult Access Point.
