Paving the Way for Housing in SF—December 2018
The best solution to homelessness is a home. In order to change the course of the homelessness crisis, we must both prevent San Franciscans from becoming homeless while finding ways to create more housing opportunities for those in need of a home. To this end, Tipping Point has formed a partnership with the San Francisco Housing Accelerator Fund, an innovative organization at the forefront of the preservation and production of affordable housing in San Francisco.
Through the partnership with the Housing Accelerator Fund, we’ve got major plans underway to create more housing. We’ve established the Homes for the Homeless Fund, a funding source with the flexibility to bring new units of permanent supportive housing online faster and more cost effectively than before. We’re identifying a pipeline of underutilized real estate to renovate, repair, and preserve. And, we’ve partnered with the City of San Francisco to create more opportunities for the development of affordable housing. Thanks to the leadership of Mayor London Breed and Supervisor Jane Kim, new legislation means permanent supportive housing may now be built on land that wasn’t previously zoned for affordable housing.
