Division Street at 11th Street
Saint Francis Homeless Challenge is organizing a monitored port-a-potty at Division and 11th Street and offering a few services (including acupuncture and phone charging) to unhoused neighbors.
In anticipation of Mayor Lee’s 72-hour warning that all unhoused neighbors will be displaced from Division Street on Friday, we are joining the Coalition on Homelessness in documenting the announced sweeps and advocating for alternative locations where unhoused neighbors can count on safe sleep, 24/7 access to toilets, and increased access to healing and transition services.
FYI: DPW generally starts sweeps at 5AM. People are needed early a.m.

“We have nowhere else to go,” Ronnie Jones, an elder,disabled un-housed resident of San Francisco who was living in a tent on Division street.Before I was out here I had an apartment in the FIllmore for years, the rent was raised and I couldn’t afford it, the first place i went was Golden Gate Park, then they made that illegal to be in, now i am out here and i have nowhere else to go..,”
While SF Mayor Ed Lee criminalizes public land for the publicly poor and creates new laws to arrest us for the sole act of being un-housed, he and his administration makes and facilitates back-room deals with non-profit and for-profit housing corporations to buy, sell and “manage” all the remaining low-income and public housing in San Francisco.
