PRC’s Integrated Service Center Opens April 1st!

Inside 170 9th Street

April 1st – with your help – PRC will open a new Integrated Service Center in San Francisco and furnish solutions for more than 5,000 people this year.

Woah!  Where did this Service Center come from?

PRC worked hard to get here, merging AIDS Emergency Fund, Baker Places, and Positive Resource Center to change the landscape of services for people affected by mental health issues, substance use, or HIV/AIDS. Consolidating PRC’s service continuum into a SoMA community hub, we are taking the next step to apply lessons learned in the early HIV/AIDS crisis to the crises of poverty, health, and homelessness facing San Francisco today.

170 9th Street, between Mission Street & Howard

PRC’s clients and community deserve the best. Partnering with the brightest innovators in San Francisco design, PRC’s Integrated Service Center is creating a welcoming and inspiring space where everyone can dream big.

  • 25,000 square feet across 3 floors
  • Meeting clients where they’re at
  • Delivering multi-faceted interventions to break cycles of poverty, ill-health, and homelessness among 5,000 people each year
  • Integrating multiple programs and 80 staff from service sites under one roof
  • Controlling occupancy costs into the future

A Central Hub, Furnishing Solutions from April 1st

Inside the Integrated Service Center, people will directly access Workforce Development, Legal Advocacy, Housing Case Management, and Emergency Financial Assistance by crossing a hallway instead of the city. By immediately connecting an individual to a needed service, we are designing a better way for thousands of vulnerable people to get healthy, stay healthy, and contribute to the city we all know and love.

170 9th Street also expands upon PRC’s proven success:

  • More than doubling PRC’s Computer Lab capacity, from 11 to 24 stations, in the Integrated Service Center PRC will move twice as many people forward and back to work.
  • Launching PRC’s new Education & Training Center, the Service Center lays the literal groundwork to expand living wage career training tracks and invest clients with critical financial literacy and planning skills to maximize independence and success.

Outside the building’s walls, PRC will continue providing low-income and health challenged San Franciscans with critical bridges to betterment through 11 Residential Treatment Programs, Hummingbird Homeless Navigation Center, and PRC’s Supportive Housing.
