Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

The Homeward Bound program is designed to help reunite homeless individuals living in San Francisco with family and friends willing and able to offer ongoing support to end the cycle of homelessness.

Through the Homeward Bound Program, HSH can provide bus tickets home to individuals that are:

  • Homeless/low income and living in San Francisco; and
  • Have family or friends at the destination that Homeward Bound staff can verify as willing and able to provide a place to stay and ongoing support; and
  • Are medically stable enough to travel unassisted to the destination; and
  • Are sober and able to abstain from alcohol or using other substances en route.


Passenger personal hygiene must be at an acceptable level to travel.  Clothing and shower facilities are available for passengers prior to travel. Passengers may not travel with a pet.  Greyhound may make exceptions for certified service animals.
