Community Forward SF
(formerly Community Awareness & Treatment Services, Inc.)
Anthony Myers, Program Coordinator
As the final element in successful life transformations, Eddy Street Apartments offers permanent, supportive housing for individuals on a low or fixed income. As with other CATS programs, Eddy Street Apartments embraces the harm reduction philosophy and is comprised of 3 components—the Direct Access to Housing (DAH) program for chronic alcoholics, HUMS (High Users of Multiple Systems), and Section 8 for low income tenants. Eddy Street is also subsidized by Section 8 for single adults. Accommodations include 25 partially furnished studio apartments with on-site support services, including individual and group counseling, case management services.
Community Forward is not just one facility. We are a network of programs designed to work together to meet every stage of need--from first response to relapse prevention and all in between.
Our continuum of care provides the tools to sobriety, treatment for substance abuse and a place to call home.
The complex problem of homelessness leaves many in a desperate situation. In a city like San Francisco, filled with resources and energy, Community Forward is dedicated to helping this fragile population.
