The Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH) announces its intent to seek proposals from organizations interested in contracting to provide support services to 36 residents at the supportive housing program located at 501 Ellis Street.

The target population is Transitional Age Youth (TAY), ages 18 – 24, currently participating in the 501 Ellis Street Supportive Housing Program in San Francisco who have serious mental illness and are homeless, marginally housed, or at imminent risk of homelessness. These TAY represent diverse genders, races, ethnicities and sexual orientations. The county mental health department, or its designee, will certify the target population eligibility for the MHSA funded housing and services.

Supportive services will include wraparound intensive case management, mental health intervention and counseling, peer-based counseling, life skills including money management, vocational training and employment counseling. The goals of these services are to empower tenants to stabilize, become self-sufficient, increase their income and education levels, and move on to more independent living while also promoting community building, tenant participation, and maintaining a safe, supportive and stable environment.

The grant agreement shall have an initial term from January 2018 through June 2021. The City shall have the option to extend the term for an additional two year period, subject to annual availability of funds, satisfactory grantee performance, and need. HSH has the sole, absolute discretion to exercise this option.

The source of funding for these services will be from the California Mental Health Services Act. Payment for all services provided in accordance with provisions under this grant shall be contingent upon the availability of funds for the purpose of providing these services. The City shall not be required to provide any definite units of services nor does the City guarantee any minimum amount of funding for these services. The Department reserves the right to make one or multiple awards.
