Event description

Description

Since 2016, the San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH) has provided assistance and support to homeless and at‐risk youth, adults and families to prevent imminent episodes of homelessness and to end homelessness for people in San Francisco. Services include outreach, homelessness prevention, emergency shelter, drop‐in centers, transitional housing, supportive housing, short‐term rental subsidies, and support services to help people exit homelessness.

On Thursday, September 19th, Institute on Aging welcomes a panel of staff experts from HSH, as they deliver a training on homelessness, housing and coordinated entry, as supported by HSH. As well as background information on this relatively-new department, the emphasis within this training will be on understanding and implementation of the HSG coordinated-entry portal in serving homeless clients or those at risk of homelessness.

Presenters from HSH will include:

- Salvador Menjivar, Director of Housing

- Margot Antonetty, Housing Workgroup Manager
