Maggie Krier, Clinical Program Supervisor
Located in the Tenderloin, the Coronado Hotel provides housing and support services to 65 formerly homeless individuals in SRO units. All referrals are processed through San Francisco Homeless Outreach Team (SFHOT) and Human Services Agency (HSA).
Support services include case management that provides outreach and engagement of tenants, intake and assessment, mediation with property management and eviction prevention, crisis intervention, conflict resolution, benefits counseling and advocacy. In addition to these services, tenants can also receive specialized benefits counseling related to SSI and veterans benefits, employment related services, mental health, substance abuse, medical counseling and referrals, and access to food in the food pantry program.
Our continuum of care provides the tools to sobriety, treatment for substance abuse and a place to call home.
