Consider Housing a North Bay Fire Victim Today

SFAA is working with the City of San Francisco to offer Good Samaritan tenancies to victims of the fires in the Wine Country and the North Bay.

Good Samaritan tenancies are typically one or two year tenancies that are offered at below market rate to victims of a natural disaster. Good Samaritan tenancies differ from typical rent-controlled tenancies in that at the expiration of the lease term, the property owner has the right to extend the tenancy, end the tenancy, or adjust the rent to fair market value.

If you have a vacancy that you’d be willing to use to help somebody in need, please consider offering your apartment to a victim of the California fires. Please contact Ben Amyes at the San Francisco Human Services Agency via email or phone at or 415-557-5370 if you are able to offer housing in this time of need.

For technical questions about the Good Samaritan law and program, please contact Charley Goss at the SFAA at or 415-255-2288.
