Description:

Mission: The Local Homeless Coordinating Board within a "Housing First" model envisions developing a continuum of services whose ultimate goal is to prevent and eradicate homelessness in the City and County of San Francisco. All efforts are aimed at permanent solutions, and the range of services is designed to meet the unique and complex needs of individuals who are threatened with or currently experiencing homelessness.

The Local Board was formed in 1996 to oversee the integrated health, housing, employment, and social service system described in the 1996-2001 Continuum of Care plan, which was drafted by the Homeless Budget Advisory Task Force. The Board has been meeting monthly since it was formed, coordinating the City’s homeless policy, McKinney funding, and Continuum of Care implementation. The purpose of the Board is to help ensure a unified homeless strategy that is supported by the Mayor, the Board of Supervisors, City departments, nonprofit agencies, peoples who are homeless or formerly homeless and the community at large.

On January 10, 2005 the Board passed a resolution to reconfigure the make up of the Board. The Board is now made up of nine members; half of the members are appointed the mayor, half by the Board of Supervisors, and the odd number member to be appointed by a neutral party (Controller).

The functions of the Board include: oversee the HUD McKinney process, review and comment on local homeless legislation, monitor the implementation of the Ten Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness, and gather community input on homelessness. In addition to its ongoing responsibilities, the Local Board is charged with developing, monitoring, and updating San Francisco’s five year Continuum of Care Plan, bringing the varying perspectives of the City, community agencies, and consumers together to guide the development and implementation of the continuum of housing and services for homeless people.
