San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing – Support Services Staff
HSH staff provides on-site case management services for all interested tenants, including assessment, referral, advocacy, mental health services, and counseling at all DISH sites. Participation in support services is voluntary; tenancy is not dependent on accessing services or completing a service plan.
Lutheran Social Services (LSS)
Because of historic high eviction rates in supportive housing due to non-payment of rent, The Department of Public Health requires that all tenants pay rent through a third party as a condition of their subsidized rent. Third Party Rent Payment is the process by which an outside agency, the third party, pays a tenant’s rent using a portion of the tenant’s income. Most DISH tenants work with Lutheran Social Services, but some tenants choose other organizations to provide this service.
