Urban Vision Alliance
Urban Vision Alliance (UVA) is a nonprofit committed to ending street homelessness through collective action and collaboration between public and private sectors. UVA addresses fragmented approaches to homelessness by breaking down silos and aligning all stakeholders through a digital platform that enables transparency, progress tracking, and resource matching. The platform centralizes efforts, reducing costs, and speeding up timelines to help cities create actionable plans to reduce street homelessness. UVA has recruited over 35 organizations and partnered with leading firms such as Gensler, Webcor, Goodwin Proctor, and more. The model is scalable and replicable, creating a practical way to deliver more housing and improved services for more people at lower costs.
Community Forward SF
The nonprofit Community Forward SF helps the most vulnerable individuals in the City get off the street, find comprehensive services, and achieve stability so they may thrive. On any given night 2,700 women experience homelessness in San Francisco. Yet the City only offers 99 beds in women-only shelters per night and 157 units of permanent supportive housing dedicated to female-identified clients. Community Forward SF plans to address this dire need by embarking on a mission to increase the number of beds in women-only shelters.
