Mayor London Breed, the city and its residents celebrate the opening of a permanent supportive housing complex at 835 Turk Street in Fillmore District, San Francisco. The project proposal includes the development of supportive housing and onsite social services.
In March 2022, the City of San Francisco purchased the project site in District 2 and converted it to Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH). The complex will provide 114 affordable homes with onsite social services to help tenants with housing challenges.
The new building will have staff, professional property management, and onsite support services. The property, a residential hotel, was selected based on its high vacancy and amenities that include a lobby and dining room. Tenants will also have access to activities and services provided by Five Keys Schools and Programs.
The new units at 835 Turk Street are part of Mayor Breed’s historic Homelessness Recovery Plan, announced in July 2020, which calls for the largest expansion of PSH in 20 years. Through the Homelessness Recovery Plan, the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH) has added a total of nearly 3,000 PSH Units, exceeding Mayor Breed’s goal to acquire or lease 1,500 PSH units by June 2022 by 195%.
To date, the City has been awarded over $212 million in state Homekey funding for new PSH, including:
- $76.9 million for the acquisition of the Diva and Granada Hotels
- $54.7 million for the building at 1321 Mission Street
- $16.8 million for the property at 5630 Mission Street
- $56.7 million for 333 12th Street
- $7.5 million for the building at 3061 16th Street
Approximately 3,000 units of Permanent Supportive Housing have been added in the last two years. San Francisco provides shelter and housing to over 15,000 homeless and formerly homeless people across the community every night.
