Shaun Haines and Friends Reduce Homelessness in SF

Logo

BY THE NS EDITORS | JULY 18, 2018

Full Story

Shaun Haines first became homeless at 19 and has since dedicated his life to supporting those who are unlucky to find themselves in the same boat.

His approach? While he’s a man of considerable dedication, he knows this issue isn’t a one-person job. He allies up with other dogged folks committed to ending homelessness, harnessing their empathy superpowers to create real change.

Haines is the founder of San Francisco Impact Partners, a nonprofit that works to give everyone access to essentials like shelter, shower, laundry, meals, internet, and a place to safely store their belongings. Haines pays particular attention bringing these resources to the LGBTQ homeless folks, a community that often face exceptional difficulties.

Through partnerships with other businesses and organizations, they aim to fill the gaps that current resources aren’t meeting.

San Francisco Impact Partners, which Haines founded last year, organized a care package pop-up Saturday afternoon at the Episcopal Church of Saint John the Evangelist on 15th Street between the city’s Mission and gay Castro districts. Volunteers handed out packs filled with personal hygiene products like toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, and mouthwash.

Recently Updated92According to Haines, the majority of the 100 homeless people they saw that day were African-American and Latino, some of whom were transgender men and women. He hopes to regularly hold the pop-up events in the coming months.

 

img_3591“I hope they will get bigger and bigger as we progress and are able to provide more services as time goes on,” said Haines, 40, a gay man who received this year’s Heritage of Pride Pride Community Award and rode in the parade Sunday in an open-top convertible.
