As part of new HUD requirements of the SFHA, the City needed to outsource all essential functions including the financial and programmatic services operation of the SFHA. In addition to programmatic impacts, this requirement eliminates the jobs of 200 SFHA employees.
In response, the Department of Human Resources worked diligently to help 90 SFHA employees who needed immediate transition assistance. DHR provided career counseling sessions, training on how to apply for City jobs, and job application support. DHR partnered with other City departments to place 100% of all SFHA employees who sought continued employment with a new job within the City and County of San Francisco. The placement of these employees would not have been possible without the guidance and support of DHR staff.
