Hamilton Families[edit | edit source]
Our mission is to end family homelessness in the San Francisco Bay Area. Established in 1985, Hamilton Families is San Francisco's leading service provider to homeless families, with carefully designed programs to prevent homelessness, provide shelter and stability, return families to permanent housing and support the well-being of children experiencing homelessness. We currently operate these programs across four sites in San Francisco and Oakland. For more information, visit https://hamiltonfamilies.org.
Hamilton Shelter Program in the Tenderloin provides a safe place to sleep, three meals a day and critical social services to 50 families a night (about 150 individuals) for up to six months. The program provides emergency beds for families in immediate crisis and private rooms for families on the city’s shelter waitlist. Participants receive comprehensive support services that include case management with referrals and linkages to community services and benefits, employment and life skills training, access to basic health services, children’s services, three meals a day, and innovative and direct assistance in securing permanent housing.
If your family needs emergency shelter, please call (415) 292-5228 at 11:00 am or 5:00 pm.
Hamilton Transitional Housing in the North of Panhandle neighborhood houses and supports 20 families at high risk for chronic homelessness for up to 18 months. Families receive intensive social services to identify and address factors contributing to their homelessness to enable them to return to stable, independent housing and economic self-sufficiency. The program provides case management, employment readiness activities, job retention support, intensive housing search support and substance abuse recovery support.
Our transitional housing location in the Ingleside neighborhood provides temporary housing to 3-5 families experiencing homelessness who have an open child welfare case and who are re-unifying with their children. Hamilton Families manages the building, and provides round-the clock staffing and light janitorial upkeep of the building, while a partner organization provides case management to the families.
