Target demographics: The families and individuals who benefit from our programs come from a broad range of backgrounds: African American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Caucasian, and Latino. We serve one- and two-parent families, including same-sex couples with children, grandparents with grandchildren, and pregnant women. At the Dudley Apartments, we also serve formerly homeless and low-income adults without children. Sixty percent of the residents in our shelter programs are children, and all 100% of our clients are very low-income, most making less than $17,000 a year.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Help set up our weekly food pantry, spend time with children living in shelter, or wrap holiday gifts.

Geographic areas served: San Francisco

Programs: Hamilton Family Center was established in 1985 and has become one of the largest providers of shelter, eviction prevention assistance, rapid re-housing, youth programming, and support services to homeless families in San Francisco. We focus on four main areas of service.

Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Rehousing
Since 2006, our award-winning First Avenues program has prevented over 375 family evictions, assisted over 350 homeless families move out of shelter into permanent housing, and helped more than 125 families transition from the crisis of homelessness to the stability of a permanent home through short and medium term rental subsidies and intensive, home-based case management services to support families to stabilize in their homes

Emergency and Interim Shelter
Hamilton Family Residences & Emergency Center provides homeless families access to overnight and short-term shelter, safety net support services, three nutritious meals a day, crisis intervention counseling, employment and life-skills training, housing search and placement assistance, individual and family therapy, and on-site medical services.

Transitional Housing
Our Transitional Housing Program provides on-site apartments for up to 18 months to families identified as being at high risk for chronic homelessness to identify and begin to address the multiple barriers and factors that contribute to their homelessness.

Permanent Supportive Housing Services
The Dudley Apartments offers on-site services to formerly homeless families, extremely low-income seniors, and single adults with disabilities in a 75-unit permanent supportive housing program in partnership with Mercy Housing California.

Hamilton Family Center’s mission is to end homelessness for families and individuals in the San Francisco Bay Area.
