• Description

In May 2017, Tipping Point Community announced a $100 million initiative to halve chronic homelessness in San Francisco in five years. Tipping Point's Chronic Homelessness Initiative (CHI) is the largest private investment to address homelessness in the city's history. Tipping Point engaged the Urban Institute to evaluate CHI's implementation and outcomes. The evaluation's primary goal is to understand CHI's overall success in helping San Francisco halve chronic homelessness and make long-term, systemic improvements that support the city's most vulnerable residents.

As CHI came to an end in June 2022, this final report documents the implementation of CHI and identifies key areas of successes and lessons learned based on evaluation activities conducted between fall 2018 and fall 2023. This report also highlights the outcomes of specific strategies and programs implemented as part of CHI.
