Project Homeless Connect works directly with those seeking services, as well as with case managers and staff from other agencies, to make connections to hard-to-access resources, services and goods on a daily basis. These resources can help you make a successful transition from homelessness to housing. Whether you are a case manager referring a client or an individual in need of services, we will work with you to meet your resource or service needs. We serve the most vulnerable San Franciscans by delivering services in the office and via phone. Our intention is to streamline and close the gap between service and need.
Our Service Coordinators are ready to refer you to social, medical, and supportive services in San Francisco. We can help you find services including: vision, dental, general medical, mental health, addiction treatment and recovery services, harm reduction programs, self-help programs, food, clothing, computer access and classes, transportation, employment services, Medi-Cal, and other benefits.
For more information on when to access services, please visit our Services Calendar.
Through our Vision Program, we can provide one pair of prescription glasses annually at no cost during a monthly Optical Day. Reading glasses, adjustments, and repairs can also be provided. Participants must have a valid prescription when attending Optical Day; if a prescription is needed, they may be received at a Community Day of Service event or through a list of participating optometrists. Contact a Service Coordinator for more information.
Please see our Calendar to learn about upcoming Optical Days.
