Walk-In Center

Move Beyond Crisis

The WALK-IN CENTER (WIC) allows healing to begin with a place to sit, someone to hear your story, a toothbrush, and a bed for the night. We can provide referrals, shelter, help replace a lost birth certificate, assist you with enrolling in benefits, get you help, and partner with you in goal-setting or understanding your needed next steps.

General Hours:
Monday – Thursday: 8:30am – 1pm and 2pm – 4:30pm
Friday: 8:30am – 1pm
For general referrals, inquiries and case management of individuals and families.

With Director Barbara Garcia’s announcement over a week ago, SF is now poised to be the first city in the country to open a SIS. Given these recent developments, we have re-posted excerpts from an earlier interview with Paul Harkin, manager of GLIDE Harm Reduction, who speaks to the scope of the problem and to the arguments in favor of SIS as a viable, compassionate & rational approach.

Many thanks to Felicia for making this important film accessible and affordable for anyone who wanted to join, and to the director Nancy Buirski for joining us for the occasion.

As our nation continues to engage with recent mass social justice movements, namely #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo, this film is especially timely and powerful. We are grateful to everyone who came to GLIDE to experience and discuss it together in community.
