From Supervisor Cohen,
The United Council of Human Services has been a key service provider in the Bayview community for over twenty years. I am grateful for the essential services they provide to our most vulnerable community members. Earlier this year the Mayor’s Office proposed to build a new homeless shelter at 2115 Jennings Street that would provide shelter beds for homeless individuals. After a thoughtful and engaging community process an agreement has been reached to not move forward with the proposed shelter at this time. I will continue to advocate and partner with homeless service providers in our City. As a member of the Board of Supervisors I have supported funding for homeless services, eviction prevention and affordable housing. I remain committed to supporting Mother Brown’s Dining Room in their efforts to care for some of the neediest members of our community.
