In the Tenderloin and South of Market The Housing Peer Counseling program was created in 2009 to cater to tenants living in the Tenderloin and South of Market (SoMA) community. Residents of these neighborhoods could drop in and speak with a peer counselor regarding habitability issues tenants may have in their units or their building. The counselors work closely with C.C.S.R.O.C. and C.E.O.P. staff in following through and making sure repairs are done in a timely manner.
Habitability issues include and are not limited to: no heat, broken windows or doors, pest infestations, unsanitary common areas, garbage going out of control, peeling paint, mold, leaking pipes, etc…
Counselors would educate tenants in steps they should take in getting repairs and habitability issues remedied. Counselors would also advocate on behalf of the tenants to the best of their ability.
To see or speak with a Housing Peer Counselor, the drop-in hours are every Mondays through Thursdays from 10am – 12pm and 2 – 4 pm. There is no counseling on Fridays.
