San Francisco Programs
In San Francisco, LSS currently provides two primary types of services – money management services for formerly homeless adults living with both physical and mental disabilities and case management services for adults, families and seniors living in supportive housing sites.
The shared goal of LSS housing services and money management programs is to assist clients to live more stable and productive lives by working to assist our clients to access and maintain safe, adequate and stable housing.
All of the people we currently serve share a common need for maintaining safe, affordable and stable housing. All of our programs work towards that common goal. We understand that unless the goal of safe, affordable and stable housing is achieved other resources that can support improved health and well being outcomes cannot be accessed in an optimum manner. Most of our clients also share a common history of long term poverty. For many of them this economic reality has also exacerbated serious mental and physical health issues
The goal of all LSS programs is to acknowledge each person’s level of functioning and to empower them to achieve control of their lives within their level of ability. The “harm reduction” philosophy of service is complimentary to this goal. In addition, a key component of all of our program work is to support clients to attain and maintain safe, stable, adequate housing so that their health outcomes and overall well-being can be maximized.
