I want to let you know that the Hotline as we all know it will be greatly reduced soon. You will soon be checking out of the hotel you are in. On the morning you check out, come to 150 Otis Street where you will be re-housed one last time.
We would like to see you locate permanent housing through the Tenderloin Housing Clinic (THC). Permanent housing may be yours by applying there for General Assistance and Modified Payments.
As of Tuesday, November 21, 1989, a G.A. Worker will be stationed at the Tenderloin Housing Clinic, located at 126 Hyde Street. As of Monday, December 4, 1989, a G.A. Worker and a THC Worker will also be available at 150 Otis Street for those of you still residing in a D.S.S. hotline room.
We encourage those of you not yet on G.A., or those of you already on G.A., to come in and apply for both G.A. and/or modified payments. G.A. eligibility criteria are as follows:
Who is eligible – Adults over 18 years of age with no dependent children
Residence – Legal residence in U.S. and intent to live in San Francisco
Income – Less than $336 a month
Assets – $25 or less
ID – G.A. program must be able to verify your identity through picture ID or through the Social Security Administration.
You must come in for your final rehousing appointment on your check out day (11/29, 11/30, or 12/1) only. If you come in on the wrong day, you will not be rehoused. We will not be offering as many hotels as in the past.
If you have any questions, call 557-6415 and talk to the duty worker.
