Help Turn Empty Units Into Homes
Any vacant apartment unit can become a safe and stable home for someone transitioning from homelessness. Find out how you can help people looking for a home today.
Why We Need Vacant Units
There’s simply not enough stable housing for people who need it in San Francisco.
Currently, people, including families, youth, and senior citizens, are cycling between short-term shelters and the streets. We can’t just build our way out of this cycle—especially when the average new housing development takes five to seven years to complete. We must also utilize vacant units to move rapidly toward our goal of housing 1,100 people. Stable homes with services provided by leading service providers have proven to be an effective and efficient way to help people permanently break the cycle of homelessness.
