The Catholic Charities Bayview and Mission Access Points operate in partnership with the San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH) to prevent family homelessness. Our Access Point staff work with families to assess their eligibility for the City’s Online Navigation Entry (ONE) System and problem-solve their housing crises.
The goal of this collaborative problem-solving is to help families avoid homelessness and stay together. A family who is unsuccessful with housing problem-solving will be further assessed to identify vulnerability and housing needs. Our team of experts work collaboratively with HSH to ensure those with the highest needs are able to access shelter and appropriate housing interventions.
The City’s Online Navigation Entry (ONE) System automatically prioritizes families for housing based on their specific needs.

“I was pregnant and living in my car. Catholic Charities wrapped their arms around me and told me my baby and I would be okay. Thank you, Catholic Charities! You gave my baby and me a safe, warm place to start our life together. Bless you.”
