As we review the past year’s accomplishments and challenges, we are grateful for our successes and emboldened by our challenges. One large and unprecedented challenge HPP faced involved housing – which is why this report focuses so intently on housing. For years, HPP helped more than 400 families find and retain housing. Last year, we were only able to help 200 families. There simply was not enough affordable housing in the city and in the larger Bay Area to house everyone in need. Meanwhile, request for housing support was at all-time high, with 44% of clients reporting homelessness or unstable housing. Knowing that we can’t serve so many families, HPP has responded by offering Housing Workshops every day. Last year 933 families attended one of our Housing Workshops for support in navigating the housing application process. Families experiencing or recovering from poverty and homelessness need access to integrated supportive services ranging from health support to job training.
