This year, support mental health care for the homeless.

About this Campaign

The COVID- 19 pandemic has tested us on many levels; both as individuals and as community members. Undeterred by the adversity presented in today's world, Community Forward SF has persevered towards our mission to meet our neighbors where they are and ensure that their overall health is recognized and prioritized despite economic disparities.

Since the very beginning of the Shelter in Place(SIP), Community Forward SF was one of the first organizations to partner with The City of San Francisco to open SIP hotels for our most vulnerable residents experiencing homelessness. This protects our clients and allows them to practice social distancing in a holistically supportive environment with our staff who they've come to know and trust.

Mental health has been globally impacted due to increased fear and anxiety brought on by the pandemic; this is especially harmful to the people we serve who’ve experienced trauma throughout their lives. To combat this, we have innovated our programs and created a talkline to connect our clients with crisis counselors should they feel isolated during the shelter in place.

Thanks to our committed frontline staff and mental health support team we’ve managed to provide shelter, medical care, and comprehensive mental health services to our most vulnerable neighbors experiencing homelessness during this crisis. To make certain that everyone we serve is adequately supported during this time of uncertainty, we have prioritized an equity initiative to ensure our frontline workers, who stepped up to do this essential work, receive increased pay for the risks they take daily to serve our clients on site.

You can make an impact this holiday season by supporting our initiatives to foster inner peace and equity within our communities. Tis' the season to keep our neighbors safe from homelessness, COVID-19, and pandemic induced mental fatigue. Please join us in our efforts by making a donation to our vital programs that focus on preserving the mental health of San Francisco’s most vulnerable residents.
