The Homeless Youth Alliance also secured a five-year lease with a five-year renewal option. The alliance also opened a new administrative space on Haight Street, city officials said.

Homeless Youth Alliance executive director Mary Howe said in a statement:

“Homeless Youth Alliance closed the doors of its drop-in center on Christmas Day 2013 and has inquired about over 160 leases since then. … While this is a huge milestone for us, finding a safe space that our young people can access and call their own is still our major goal.”
