On March 17, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors (SFBOS) voted 11-0 to approve the Hummingbird Place Respite Center at 1156 Valencia Street.
The Center will provide 30 overnight beds and 25 drop-in spots for homeless and formerly homeless people with behavioral health issues. The City plans to open it in April.
At a February 27 community meeting held at the site, MHASF staff, ARISE and Mad Mob SF members joined other community members to speak in support of Hummingbird Place. This advocacy helped pave the way for the approval of this much needed program.
