Ask for outreach from the SF Homeless Outreach Team (SFHOT) by calling 311 or SFHOT’s public line at 415-355-7401.
Leave a voicemail with your name, location and physical descriptions so the SFHOT team can find you and offer resources.
This voicemail is checked twice a day, and teams respond as quickly as possible to requests with the information above. SFHOT will not return phone calls, so it is important you provide your location and the times of day that an outreach team can find you there. The team usually responds within 24-48 hours. Please note that shelter space is limited. SFHOT might not be able to immediately place you in shelter, but the team will provide available resources.
