“Solutions SF offers so many services: you can get your record expunged, start a savings account, receive guidance on resumes and interviews, and secure stabilized housing. When I entered Solutions SF, I had been unemployed for two years – on my resume I looked unhireable. The program gives you experience and equips you with everything you need to find a full-time job.

“I stopped using alcohol as an outlet for problems; I go to the gym instead. I’ve learned how to take care of myself and make healthy decisions.

“The staff is so willing to help you. They give you all the tools, but you have to put in the work. You have to take a good look at yourself and be willing to change and embrace the future.”

“I was in the Lobby Services program, then hired as a full time desk clerk, and eventually promoted to Assistant Lobby Supervisor. I now supervise the clerks that go through our program, mentoring them and helping them find their strengths. This position is a chance to give back to a program that has given so much to me. I want to help others reach the same level of success I have reached.

“To anybody who feels like they’re stuck in a rut: all you need to do is find that one open door, and stick with it. There will be times where you don’t want to do it, where you don’t want to get out of bed. What kept me going was my daughter. When I found out I was having a child, I told myself it was time to grow up. That got me out of bed every morning.”

Letter from the Executive Director

Dear Partners and Supporters,

This was a year to celebrate. As you’ll see in this report, we opened two new buildings, added 188 units to our portfolio of housing, employed 150 people through our social enterprise Solutions SF, raised $200,000 during our annual benefit A Night With The Stars, and fought for and passed the Fair Chance Ordinance to give many people in San Francisco a new chance to find gainful employment. We couldn’t have done it without the outstanding support of the funders, donors, volunteers, and the Community Housing Partnership (CHP) staff.

We also looked toward the future and codified an ambitious set of long-term goals. We pledged that by 2020:

Community Housing Partnership is a dynamic organization that will prove through data-driven outcomes that a housing ladder is possible and our tenants can reach self-sufficiency. We are committing to achieve these goals with your help and the help of the greater community. We will continue to improve our performance, and we will continue to innovate.

You are part of our community that shares our vision of being more impactful in the lives of those we serve. Thank you for your generous support this year. Together we can provide homes and jobs to help our more vulnerable community members rebuild their lives.

In Partnership,

Gail Gilman
