Central City Access Point

Compass Central City Access Point is one of three primary entry points in the city for families experiencing or at-risk of homelessness to connect with the San Francisco's Family Coordinated Entry.


  • Problem solving and planning for finding safe shelter, whether with friends or family or by accessing emergency shelter

  • Intake and assessment for families who are unable to self-resolve their homelessness through problem solving

  • Screening for eligibility for shelter and housing programs through SF Family Coordinated Entry Program

  • Information and referrals for services in the community that benefit homeless families
