Connecting Point is the central intake point for any family in SF facing homelessness or a housing crisis. We provide access to the city's 4 family shelters: Compass Family Center, St. Joseph Shelter, Hamilton Family Residences, and Raphael House. Families can also receive rental assistance and case management as well as crisis counseling and referrals. Please call to complete an intake. If you are a family in need of immediate shelter, please call the Hamilton Family Emergency Center at 11am or 5pm at 415-292-5228.

Compass Connecting Point is a unique program that gives any San Francisco family experiencing a housing crisis quick access to the services that they need most, including eviction prevention, emergency shelter, health care, child care and educational programs.

Services include:

  • Intake interviews and placement into shelter
  • Intensive counseling for families on the waiting list for shelter including assistance in job hunting and school enrollment, plus help accessing benefits, eviction prevention services, childcare, legal assistance, substance abuse treatment, mental health services, and healthcare
  • Interest free loans for move-in costs, deposits, back rent, debt payment, and outstanding bills through our Rental Assistance Project (RAP)
  • Housing placement assistance, enabling many families to avoid shelter placement and move directly into housing
  • Drop-in support services, including computer access, food, clothing, diapers and baby supplies, personal voicemail service, and transportation assistance
  • Onsite healthcare through the Tom Waddell Health Center
  • A toll-free hotline to provide crisis intervention and information about services
  • Referrals to a wide network of Bay Area human services agencies

2010 HAP Manual TextEdit

The 2010 HAP Manual has many changes that are not currently part of SFHomeless.net. The question is whether the wiki or the manual contains the most up to date information. The most efficient way to ensure the wiki has the best information is to add the 2010 HAP Manual text into its respective wiki agency page under a new section “2010 HAP Manual”. It will then be up to future wiki users to determine whether and how to update the agency page with the new information.
