Housing Ladder Program

The Housing Ladder Program, operated by the San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH), offers current permanent supportive housing residents the opportunity to move to more independent living environments. By joining the Housing Ladder, tenants make their units available to people experiencing homelessness.

Continuum of Care (CoC)

The Continuum of Care provides rental assistance and supportive services for homeless individuals who have long-term disabilities resulting mainly from serious mental illness, alcohol and drug use, or an HIV-positive medical condition. In partnership with the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Services, THC provides case management and supportive services to help participants maintain stability in permanent housing.

Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH)

As part of the nation’s plan to eradicate homelessness among veterans, the VASH program combines rental assistance for homeless veterans with on-site case management and clinical services provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). THC began offering permanent housing through the VASH program in 2016.
