Dear PHC family,
You and I work the whole year to make a real difference for those experiencing homelessness in San Francisco. Today, let’s celebrate #GivingTuesday – a global day dedicated to giving back – by honoring our collaboration and looking forward to new ways we can achieve change.
Take action today and show the homeless community that we haven’t forgotten about them:
VOLUNTEER for PHC 57! Opportunities include hygiene kit collation and hoodie sorting on December 16 and volunteering in Volunteer Central on December 17.
$50 will help us provide a new pair of glasses and a haircut this holiday season.
Need a little inspiration? Here are some of PHC’s recent successes as well as an idea of what to expect in 2015.
Daily Connections: I’m thrilled to say that our office has been open to walk-in appointments every weekday since 2012. We offer vital resources to help those experiencing homelessness. One such resource is our unique denture program; so far we’ve seen 78 people get new teeth and a renewed sense of self-confidence. In the next year, we’ll be adding more services and strengthening the programs we already have.
Service Trends App: We’re developing an app with Blueprint, a UC Berkeley nonprofit run by students. The app will help track event trends and gather data about who accesses which services. If a participant is unable to access a service at the event, the app will connect them with our office for wraparound care. In San Francisco, there’s no excuse not to use technology for good.
New Website: Our website is getting a much-needed redesign with the help of an Oakland-based web developer, mightyMINNOW. The new site will be easier to navigate for all members of the PHC family: homeless participants, service providers, donors, and volunteers. An exciting new feature will let participants contact our office directly when they need help.
Provider Connect: PHC has been hosting Provider Connect networking events for nonprofit and city partners. By bringing our partners together to talk and learn, we can strengthen homeless services throughout San Francisco.
With so much gratitude for your work #PHCThanks

P.S. Wednesday is the last day to respond to the our survey for long-time volunteers. If you’ve volunteered with PHC for 5 or more years, we’d love to recognize you!
