The homeless in San Francisco will have an additional shelter option during the cold days of winter, Mayor Gavin Newsom’s office announced Friday.
A winter shelter program for adult males begins Sunday and runs through Feb. 27, the Mayor’s Office said in a statement.
The so-called San Francisco Interfaith Winter Shelter Program will offer both housing and support services for guests, it said.
The St. Boniface Church at 133 Golden Gate Ave. will be the first program location offering shelter. Spaces are reserved on a
first-come, first-served basis.
Those interested in a sleeping unit Sunday should come to St. Boniface no earlier than 5:30 p.m. to receive a ticket, the Mayor’s Office said.
The ticket will allow the guest a seven-day stay and two meals a day, it said.
“The Human Services Agency and Episcopal Community Services are collaborating with the San Francisco Interfaith Council to provide additional shelter services to ensure our homeless residents have refuge from the cold,” Newsom said in a statement.
