The 2021-2022 Interfaith Winter Shelter opened on Sunday, November 21, 2021 and is in operation through March 26, 2022. It will be hosted by four different locations throughout the season. Each location has a different cot layout and capacity based on the dimensions of the space. Capacity ranges from 20 to 67 cots per site. The program serves anyone in need of shelter, provides two meals a day, with dinner service mostly from Interfaith and coordinated volunteers.
Cots are allocated through HSH’s centralized guest placement team. Referrals are made by SFHOT and HSOC. Information about opportunities for walk ins, when available, is posted on the HSH website.

- Physical distancing of 6 feet between individuals
- Enhanced cleaning processes
- Access to handwashing and sanitation stations
- Enhanced food safety practices and face coverings will be provided and are required to be worn by guests and staff
