February 26, 2024

The population of people experiencing homelessness in San Antonio reduced by 11% over the period of a decade. In comparison, San Francisco experienced an increase by nearly 80%. San Antonio's Haven for Hope implemented a comprehensive approach to address issues surrounding homelessness, an initiative spearheaded by Scott Ackerson, current Director of the Social Impact Studio. Haven for Hope's model incorporates evidence-based practices to address the complex issues of people experiencing homelessness. While San Francisco focused heavily on housing programs, it is crucial to address the underlying issues through comprehensive services. The Haven for Hope model offers a potential blueprint for replication in San Francisco, emphasizing the importance of treating the root causes of homelessness rather than just the symptoms.
