Re-Becoming: A HomeRise Film

At HomeRise, we believe that a home has the power to stabilize a person’s life. In Re-Becoming, we’re sharing with community a wider glimpse into the work we do at HomeRise to help San Francisco's unhoused population find a permanent home and a better life.

Since our formation in 1990, HomeRise has become San Francisco's largest provider of permanent supportive housing. Beyond just housing, the film profiles the core of HomeRise's service model – personalized counseling, community organizing and advocacy on the steps of City Hall, quick and responsive apartment maintenance and so much more in between. A diverse team of staff approaching this work from myriad angles all coordinate to provide residents secure, stable housing with the support that helps them define their own path towards self-sufficiency.

Re-Becoming lays bare the profound impact that our work can have on both the residents who benefit from it and the staff who care so deeply about those residents.
