Mayor Gavin Newsom today marked the 37th Project Homeless Connect (PHC) event held at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium by announcing the opening of a permanent PHC office location at 187 Golden Gate Avenue early next year. The PHC office will provide information and referral services for clients needing assistance navigating the system of care in between the large bi-monthly events.
“Project Homeless Connect has changed the lives of thousands of people on the streets of San Francisco, enlisting thousands of volunteers to connect people in need with services and supportive housing,” said Mayor Newsom. “We’re moving in a different direction on homelessness, putting politics aside in favor of smart policy and measurable outcomes, with a 40% reduction in homelessness on our streets since I’ve been mayor. We must continue to make progress on homelessness, and the new permanent home for Project Homeless Connect will help ensure we keep moving in the right direction.” Read more.
