An 80-unit residential development opened Wednesday in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood for adults experiencing homelessness.
The Garland Hotel, at 505 O’Farrell St., is a former single-room occupancy hotel. The city provided funding for the Tenderloin Housing Clinic to lease and manage the building, providing long-term affordable housing with on-site social services to people exiting chronic homelessness. City officials call the units permanent supportive housing.
Mayor London Breed said in a news release Wednesday:
“Providing shelter is foundational to our Homelessness Recovery Plan and critical for our plan to get people living on the street the services they need.”
“These 80 units will not only provide permanent housing for formerly homeless individuals, they will also bring us 80 units closer to addressing chronic homelessness. I want to thank all our partners on this project for their work to open these units to our most vulnerable communities.”
