Bringing Clean and Safe Streets to All San Franciscans

"A Place for All" Passes PSNS Committee!

Dear Community Member,

Supervisor Mandelman's "A Place for All​" (APA​), a policy and a plan to shelter those on our streets, was unanimously approved on May 26 by the members of the Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee.  Co-sponsors include Supervisors Stefani, Melgar, Mar, Dorsey, and Safai. It now goes to the full Board of Supervisors for its final vote on June 7.  

This is a big deal!  San Francisco is now poised to adopt a law requiring the City to operate a sufficient number of shelters and permanent supportive housing units to allow every unsheltered person in San Francisco to be offered a place to sleep at night.

Thank you for emailing our Supervisors and supporting APA at the committee hearings with public comment.  APA wouldn’t have passed PSNS without your support!!  (read full legislation)

We are optimistic the Board of Supervisors will approve APA.  To help us ensure final passage, and if you have not already done so, please email them TODAY (click button below).  Please take ten seconds to send a powerful message to our Supervisors that San Franciscans want shelter for all to help those suffering on the streets and to improve conditions in our neighborhoods.

Thank you!
Mark, Lori, Carolyn and Marlayne

About Beyond Homeless: Finding Hope
At the heart of the homeless epidemic are human lives. Many of these unique individuals are suffering from addiction, mental illness, depression, or unemployment in addition to being homeless. An intervention must be staged to save their lives, save our city and provide a model of hope for people across the nation.

Over the past decade in San Francisco, the number of people experiencing homelessness has risen by more than 50% while spending has skyrocketed 130%. This is unacceptable. The homeless epidemic demands an effective solution. Now the Urban Vision Alliance, a coalition of 32 for- and non-profit organizations, the Salvation Army and Independent Institute are banding together to change the direction of homelessness in the Bay Area.

Their solution to the problem provides transformational housing along with ongoing individualized 360-degree care such as the Salvation Army's "The Way Out" proposal.  The goal is to help individuals resolve the issues underlying their homelessness to achieve their full potential. Haven for Hope in San Antonio provides living proof that this approach moves those experiencing homelessness beyond homeless.

The panel will be moderated, and includes a diverse group of individuals featured in the film:
  • Gabriel Baldinucci, CEO, Urban Vision Alliance
  • Lori Brooke, RescueSF co-founder
  • Major Matthew Madsen, Divisional Secretary, The Salvation Army
  • Mary Theroux, Executive Director, Beyond Homeless; former Chairwoman, The San Francisco Salvation Army
  • Romi Nottage, Downtown Streets Team, Senior Director
  • Tom Wolf, recovery advocate, formerly homeless addict
