Outreach Initiatives

Our outreach team works closely with our Ambassadors and other staff members to identify and reach out to people who are experiencing homelessness. We have formed relationships with numerous community based organizations. We also work closely with City agencies including the Encampment Resolution Team (ERT), the SF Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing, the San Francisco Police Department, and the Department of Public Works. We believe that homelessness is an interdisciplinary problem and as such it requires an interdisciplinary marshaling of resources.

We also work directly with residents, property owners, and business managers and owners to resolve specific issues. Often, we can negotiate real-world workable solutions to the typical safety and sanitation issues presented by San Francisco’s seemingly intractable homeless problem.
