FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is HPP?

HPP – Homeless Prenatal Program – is a family resource center in San Francisco that empowers low-income families and families who are homeless, particularly mothers motivated by pregnancy and parenthood, to find within themselves the strength and confidence they need to transform their lives. The agency serves over 3,000 low-income and homeless families annually, providing a variety of programs and services to help families become healthy, stable, and self-sufficient.

 

How long has HPP served families in San Francisco? 

HPP was launched in 1989 to provide prenatal care to homeless, pregnant women. However, the agency learned early on that families needed broader support, ranging from food and diapers to housing and job training. HPP moved into its current building in the Mission in 2005. With over 30 years of experience, HPP helps families break the cycle of poverty and homelessness. 

What is the history of this development? 

HPP recently acquired the building just west of its current facility at 18th Street and Potrero. HPP is partnering with Mercy Housing to develop the site in order to enhance HPP’s programming and services and provide much needed, high-quality housing affordable to families in San Francisco.
