Summary of the Property
The Elk Hotel was built in 1923 and was acquired by THC in 2006. Known for its architecture and Baroque style ornamentation, the Elk Hotel has kept a good deal of its original construction. This includes the arched entryway, paneled walls and ceiling, and the neon blade sign in front that reads “Elk Hotel”.
The Elk Hotel features 87 units of permanent housing for formerly homeless single adults. The front of the building features a well-lit communal space where tenants often gather with their guests to socialize or watch television. THC staff also utilize this space to host events and activities such as coffee hours, bingo nights, birthday parties, holiday parties, and field trips to various locations such as Alcatraz or Ocean Beach. Case Managers often provide hygiene kits, resource pamphlets and community donations to tenants when available. Tenants receive assistance from Support Services staff during drop-in hours or by scheduling an appointment. On-site Property Management staff are also available throughout the day as well as for after hour emergencies. Both teams work closely with tenants to provide them with the support they need.
