In January 2018, San Francisco launched a new Healthy Streets Operations Center (HSOC), which seeks to provide unified city services to unsheltered persons experiencing homelessness, ultimately ensuring that the city’s streets are safe for everyone. As a joint operation among multiple agencies, the HSOC is able to coordinate appropriate responses to eliminate redundancy and ensure effectiveness. Hear more about the model and the lessons they’ve learned over nearly a year of operation.
