The Pacific Bay Inn

The Pacific Bay Inn located at 520 Jones Street in San Francisco was the first building to be master-leased by the Department of Public Health to service the homeless population of San Francisco. It was first leased in 1999 by a local non-profit and is now leased directly by the City and County of San Francisco. The building is located in the upper Tenderloin district just south of Geary Boulevard next door to Dottie’s Restaurant, one of the most popular breakfast restaurants in the city.
