Housing and Supportive Services Program
One of the major needs for TGIJP clients is finding stable and affordable housing. The addition of our Housing and Supportive Services Program in 2019 was recognized by the SF Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing to be an ‘Access Point’ for the TGI community as they enter into the SF housing system.
The Housing Program staff have empathetic 1:1 conversations designed to guide and empower individuals experiencing homelessness. Together we work to uncover solutions to our clients homelessness through their own relationships and resources. If identified resources are not sufficient to address immediate housing needs, TGIJP housing staff will proceed to assess prioritization status for immediate transitional or, for permanent housing resources.
