We need every possible tool at our disposal and what currently is missing is an interim, transitional supportive housing strategy of modular/tiny home construction, which we can deploy efficiently and affordably and increase capacity to offer anyone on the street a safe and secure alternative. We will never remedy the homelessness crisis until we do so. We’re here to answer any question you have.

Modular housing is a method of building houses where housing components are manufactured off-site and then put together in pieces on the lot. Modular technology typically results in a dramatic reduction in cost and construction time compared to traditional stick-built housing.

Yes, between government (city, state and federal), the religious faith-based community, and private developers, there are more than enough sites to be repurposed for temporary, modular housing. Homelessness is a public health crisis and we need to act accordingly and find locations to offer as a safe and secure alternative to the street.

No, we need more of everything including permanent, congregate, navigation centers, rehabilitated SRO’s, expansion of our Homeward Bound program connecting individuals to their families in other municipalities, plus a significant expansion of temporary, modular housing – which is what we are trying to achieve.

Yes, to genuinely help people advance within the existing system of care, comprehensive, wrap-around services are vital. We will ensure that every proposed facility includes meaningful staffing levels and services to address addiction and mental health challenges and include security to ensure a safe environment for all.

Addressing the Need

Only once people are safely off the streets with a shelter of their own can they get the additional assistance they need. Permanent housing is far less likely without temporary housing, so the crisis and number of people without homes grow. Temporary modular housing is faster and cheaper to build. We need community support to find locations and generate momentum.

Where Can These Units Live

San Francisco has land available for temporary, modular housing. What underutilized parcels have you seen in the city that can be repurposed for temporary, modular housing throughout San Francisco? We are looking for potential sites throughout the City. Parcels need to be flat and approximately an acre in size (¾ the length of a football field).

The City and County of San Francisco’s Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH) department has done a comprehensive study and determined the City needs 2,000 such units. A similar study conducted by the regional nonprofit organization All Home found the exact same conclusion. We are looking for 50 sites with geographic equity to house 2,000 of our unhoused neighbors so we can begin to truly turn the tide.
