Managed Care Program
The objectives and goals established for this program include providing intensive case management to 30 homeless clients staying overnight in the emergency shelter. In 2007, we exceeded our targeted caseload of 30 clients. The Foundation received a three-year grant from the City and County of San Francisco and the Mayor's Office on Community Development (MOCD) renewed its contract through 2009. We are linked to an array of intensive case management and support services, such as substance abuse, job training, and housing searches, for the chronically homeless clients. The program is staffed with a job specialist and a case manager; however, the Foundation contracts with a consultant to serve as the Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
Homeless Storage Facility
This program employs two staff to monitor and assist homeless clients store their personal belongings at 350 Jones Street in San Francisco for up to six months. If for longer periods, they reapply for an extension.
