San Francisco Homeless Resource

This portal will be a place for people to look for the answers to basic questions in helping the homeless. These links will take you to a page dedicated to answering that question. Experts and other people in the know are encouraged, begged, to contribute their knowledge to these answer pages to share with the community. I know that many advocates out there answer the same questions every day, and now we can build a place where people can be directed to look first. So please contribute a little now in order to save yourself and others in the long run.

To add more questions, please use the Add Resource on the main page, or e-mail Thanks.
