In the midst of San Francisco's housing crunch, a chance to qualify for a wait list is news. "Crunch" quickly turns to "crisis" for low income folks, and people experiencing challenges with health, employment and other issues.
Bayview Commons is owned by San Francisco Housing Development Corporation, in partnership with Mission Housing.
According to the SFHDC's website, "On a daily basis, the thirty families living at SFHDC's Bayview Commons Apartments have access to supportive and case-management services. These services are non-mandatory, confidential and are designed to meet the distinct needs of each resident. Families living at Bayview Commons are typically physically or mentally disabled, were formerly homeless, or suffer from HIV or AIDS."
