Compass Family Services is located in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood and operates an emergency shelter, transitional housing program, child care centers, and a computer lab and training center for families. They also provide rent subsidies and intensive case management support to help families find and maintain permanent housing. This project consists of the acquisition and rehabilitation of a 18,145 square foot building that houses the mental health services and administrative offices of Compass Family Services. The programs that would be co-located in the new facility will combine to help an estimated 3,700 unduplicated parents and children each year to achieve housing stability, economic self-sufficiency, and family well-being.
Last year NMTC enabled Compass Family Services, a 106 year old nonprofit serving homeless and at-risk families, to purchase a facility for services and escape the high rents of San Francisco. In addition, our new building is more welcoming, it’s designed for the services we provide and it has afforded us room for expansion.
