Community Forward SF started this petition to San Franciscans

On any given night, 2,700 women experience homelessness in SF (2019 PIT Count). More than 90 percent of cis and trans homeless women experience severe physical or sexual abuse at some point in their lives (National Network to End Domestic Violence). 

This population is also aging, with more than 50% of the SF homeless population over the age of 50 (2019 PIT Count). The average mortality age for chronically homeless women is 48 versus 83 years of age for housed women (LA Times). 

Yet San Francisco offers just 99 beds of women’s only shelter per night, and 157 units of  permanent supportive housing dedicated to female-identified clients.

Our city must do better or vulnerable women will continue to be abused. Community Forward SF has a solution for a future where ALL women are granted access to safe, dignified and supportive housing.

Do you want to put an end to unnecessary violence and abuse for unhoused women? We need your support to make this happen.  Please sign our petition and let your voice be heard! Together, we can insure the safety of our community’s most vulnerable women.

This petition is supported by The SF Coalition on Homelessness
