BENEFITING: Mission Hiring Hall Inc
Historically high rents , a lack of affordable housing options, and a spate of tenant evictions from rent-controlled units are all exacerbating our crisis of homelessness in San Francisco. Many of our homeless clients at Mission Hiring Hall are working full time and still not able to move out of shelter into market rate housing. Affordable housing options in the Bay Area are limited and often require qualified candidates to wait years before they are offered a unit, if ever.
Many of the resources that you and I take for granted are not available to employees who are experiencing homelessness. Regular access to beds, showers, laundry, business attire, uniforms, specialized footwear, tools, secure storage, transportation and other needed resources to retain employment and build a sustainable career are typically not available to individuals who are homeless. We are raising money to provide resources to our homeless clients that are not available or insufficient through existing programs.
Our clients are highly motivated, job-ready, and want to work!
We want to help them achieve self-sufficiency by providing professional clothing, personal grooming items, backpacks, briefcases, mailboxes, storage units, school supplies, educational materials, and subsidized housing while they complete vocational training programs.
