San Francisco Homeless Resource

The administrators of are undertaking a new effort to clean up and reorganize the shelter/SRO/transitional housing categories and listings. Much of the information, especially the SRO category, is as it was five years ago before the government leased most of the available rooms in the city. We would like to organize the housing resources so that they are categorized in ways that make it more useful for users to understand and seek housing more efficiently.

The categories currently are the following:

  • Housing - General Resources
  • Housing - Shelters / Transitional Housing
  • Housing Opportunities
  • Housing - Resource Centers
  • SRO Hotels

These categories will continue to exist on the pages for the use of the HAP Manual producers at their request. Additional categories will be added to agencies/entities that already have one of more of the above categories.

The new proposed categories are:

  • Category:Housing-Privately Administered Resid Hotel – for a residential hotel that has space available for rental for any person regardless of government program participation. This category might described classic residential hotels that rent on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. SRO-Public can described a hotel where all rooms or even just 1 room is available for cash rental.
  • Category:Shelter-CHANGES – a shelter that is managed and funded by the government, and is accessed through the Resource Centers and the CHANGES system. administrators will be undertaking this project, but we encourage anyone with information and a willingness to closely follow the guidelines to help if they wish. Please create a User ID and login before you do any work on this project.

Of course all wiki users are encouraged to contribute to the overall content of the sites when they see changes are needed, or they wish to add something new.

Thank you!

Note: These guidelines and category names may be changed around over the next few days (week of Feb 18) as input from the community is gathered. Please check back and click History on the top of the page to view changes.
