Safe, clean, and stable housing can make a world of difference for new and expecting mothers. According to Health Affairs, pregnant women experiencing homelessness were more than twice as likely to have a complication that affected their health during birth and almost twice as likely to have an early or threatened labor or a hemorrhage during pregnancy.
Thankfully, there are organizations in our community working to solve this problem by finding stable and quality housing for pre-natal homeless women in San Francisco. The Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) works in partnership with families to break the cycle of childhood poverty and help them find the strength and confidence they need to transform their lives.
At Mosser, we were determined to work with this organization to help HPP families remain healthy, safe, and self-sufficient during pregnancy. We provided 11 apartments—all secure, stable, and quality homes – for at-risk mothers with infants who are part of the HPP program.
HPP’s Housing Assistance Program serves hundreds of families per year with housing case management, limited, short-term financial assistance, and workshops that help families obtain and retain safe housing.
We encourage you to learn more about the great work that HPP is doing in our community to serve over 300 families with quality housing, counseling, educational resources, wellness services, and locally sourced fresh foods.
