We want Safe Havens in Central Market.


Safe Haven sites are where a person in distress can seek help. These sites are marked by a bright green sign and allow the distressed individual 15 minutes of shelter and a phone call, courtesy of the helpful individual that owns the Safe Haven site. Currently there are about five dozen Safe Haven sites in the Tenderloin and South of Market areas. Participating sites range from small delis to non-profit housing providers.

The idea for a Safe Haven network came from the Community Housing Partnership’s 2005 Community Convening. There, over 200 neighborhood residents chose Community Safety as a central issue for the organization to work on (along with Affordable Housing and Healthcare). Participants were clear about the kind of safety they wanted: one that would build bridges between neighbors, and not rely on the police to solve all of their problems. Since that time, our project has become a model of what neighborhood mutual aid can look like.

With up to 9,000 units of housing expected to be built within the boundaries of San Francisco’s burgeoning Hub District, which is off-centered around the intersection of Market Street and South Van Ness Avenue, the plan to guide the development of the neighborhood’s “Public Realm” (i.e., all the space between the buildings and towers) has been drafted.

The Draft Public Realm Plan sets forth the vision for how the neighborhood’s streets, alleys and open spaces could be designed, with specific recommendations for which streets, alleys and open spaces should be redesigned and a host of design strategies and examples.

I met Cap'n Redmond at the #Safer6th event and was happy to hear there are an increasing number of beat officers on 6th. What can residents do to support Safe Havens?
