Winton Hotel Opens for 104 Homeless

Tenderloin Housing Clinic (THC) proudly opened the Winton Hotel, located in the Tenderloin at 445 O’Farrell St., on Wednesday, November 16, 2016. The Winton will offer 104 units of permanent, supportive housing to formerly homeless adults, with 45 of those units being a part of the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program. New tenants will move in over the next few weeks and months, each carefully placed by THC staff, to ensure tenants feel comfortable and at home in their new surroundings.

The Winton now joins 19 other THC properties that provide housing opportunities to some of San Francisco’s most vulnerable population. The newly renovated building is the second SRO hotel opened by THC in the past year. The expansion of THC’s housing opportunities is part of an on-going effort to help the City reach its goal of ending homelessness for at least 8,000 residents within the next four years. What may seem like a small step toward a long-term goal is, in reality, a monumental and life-changing event for the individuals affected by the hotel’s opening.
