San Francisco Women's Housing Coalition
Opening doors for women experiencing housing instability
In San Francisco today, the trends of homelessness, COVID-19 pandemic, and the displacement and the lack of services for women coming out of the criminal justice system has increased the number of women who find themselves homeless on the streets of San Francisco. Studies have shown that women and men experience homelessness in different ways and women are at increased vulnerability for violence. Currently, the community-based organizations providing housing for women experiencing homelessness in San Francisco do not have the capacity or resources to meet the growing demand for their services. Therefore, Cameo House, the Mary Elizabeth Inn, and San Francisco SafeHouse have come together to advocate for increasing the resources to meet the unique and growing needs of homeless women in San Francisco.
