Today, Mayor Edwin M. Lee, the San Francisco Human Services Agency (HSA) and the San Francisco Interfaith Council announced the schedule for the Emergency Winter Shelter Program and shelter site locations. The City is also currently planning for a significant shelter bed expansion in advance of the anticipated El Nino storms in order to ensure everyone in need of shelter receives it during the expected cold, wet winter storms.
“San Francisco is a compassionate City with nationally recognized programs that provide housing, shelter and innovative supportive services to our most in need and homeless population,” said Mayor Lee. “I thank Episcopal Community Services, San Francisco Interfaith Council, who in partnership with the Human Services Agency, will ensure those on our streets have refuge from the cold and wet weather expected this winter season.”
