HSH’s Strategic Framework lays out our goals to significantly reduce homelessness in San Francisco and ensure homelessness is a rare, brief, and one-time occurrence. We will strive to get house keys into the hands of as many people as possible and improve the quality of life for all San Franciscans, both housed and homeless.
This Strategic Framework outlines ambitious yet achievable goals for the five years between 2016 and 2021. This document provides a roadmap for our work. The Department is in the process of creating the next Strategic Framework.
Homelessness Recovery Plan
HSH’s work between 2020 and 2022 was also guided by Mayor London Breed’s Homelessness Recovery Plan. Learn more about Mayor’s plan to ensure the City’s recovery from COVID-19 includes our most vulnerable residents.
Definitions of Homelessness
San Francisco uses a broader definition of homelessness than the federal government. Get information about the definitions of homelessness used in San Francisco.
