In San Francisco, LSS currently provides two primary types of services – money management services for chronically homeless adults with special needs 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 in living stable and productive lives by accessing and maintaining safe, adequate and stable housing.
All of the people we serve share a common need for safe, affordable and stable housing. Our programs work towards that common goal. We understand that unless safe, affordable and stable housing is achieved, then other resources that 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 LSS programs is to acknowledge each person’s level of functioning, empowering them to live as independently as possible. The “harm reduction” philosophy of service is complimentary to this goal.
