Our Projects

San Francisco

DignityMoves, Tipping Point, and the City of San Francisco have partnered to bring a new interim housing community to the center of San Francisco. While more permanent housing is the ultimate long-term goal, our streets cannot be the waiting room. DignityMoves is building “interim supportive housing” as a stop-over between tents and permanent housing– where clients can be safe and receive the critical support services necessary to rebuild their lives and exit homelessness.

A Closer Look at Our San Francisco Project

Site

The site will provide 70 private, dignified rooms for individuals experiencing homelessness. Each room will have a bed, a desk and chair, heating, a window, and most importantly a door that locks. Contrary to traditional congregate shelters, residents will have the safety and dignity of a private space to call home while they work towards a more permanent exit from homelessness. The site has been thoughtfully designed by Gensler and PAE Engineers to create a welcoming community and foster a sense of belonging.

Services

Clients will be connected to mental health care, addiction services, SSI and other benefits and a wide array of other services. Above all, we will work tirelessly to help clients find their way back to stable housing. Clients are anticipated to stay approximately 30-180 days while they get stabilized and find sustainable housing. The location will be at 33 Gough Street in the South of Market neighborhood. The project will remain there for 18 months and then be relocated to another site.

Budget

The construction cost is $1.7m ($24,285 per bed). For the initial 18-month project, the total cost is $2.04m. The City will be contributing towards the operating and services costs, as well as the land. Tipping Point Community has donated $1,000,000 for the project. We are asking the community to contribute $700k towards the balance of construction, furnishings, and site beautification-- for a true public-private partnership.
