project homeless connect

The Mission of Project Homeless Connect is to connect San Franciscans experiencing homelessness with the care they need to move forward. 


  • To connect San Franciscans experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless to hard to access services in a more efficient and compassionate manner.

  • To build a more Compassionate San Francisco.

As we stride forward, PHC envisions a day when all San Franciscans are cared for and housed. To this end, our core purposes are to provide connections and care that lead toward an end of homelessness for our neighbors and to build a more compassionate San Francisco.


simply the basics

The Mission of Simply the Basics is to provide for individuals, organizations, and communities their most basic needs with dignity so that they can focus on bigger goals. We simply remove barriers, allowing people to have the opportunity to achieve.


  • To improve the overall health and wellbeing of the low income community, people at risk of losing their homes, and people experiencing homelessness.

  • To save nonprofits time and resources by managing, securing, and redistributing their in-kind and hygiene related needs, allowing them to focus their time on clients and their Mission.

The most basic human needs are to feel safe and healthy. Simply the Basics is inspired by Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. If a person is unable to meet their needs at the very basic level (food, shelter, clothing, education, and hygiene), they will be incapable of greater goals (job security, sobriety, mental health, and self-actualization).
