Larkin Street is San Francisco's largest non-profit provider of housing for young people experiencing homelessness, providing more than 80,000 bed-nights of emergency and supportive housing each year.

In addition to their two short-term shelters, Larkin Street offers more than 250 housing beds for up to two years or more.

More than just safe places to sleep, the housing programs offer comprehensive supports to young people, including individual/group counseling, life skills trainings, and more.

Some provide 24-hour onsite staffing, while other programs give young people the chance to live more independently in their communities.
