Housing Conservatorship

 

In September 2018, the California Governor approved Senate Bill 1045 (SB 1045), or the Housing Conservatorship Program, creating a pilot program that allows for the conservatorship of adults with serious mental illness and substance use disorder treatment needs who meet strict eligibility requirements. Housing conservatorship is designed to help individuals who cycle in and out of crisis and are incapable of caring for their health and well-being due to co-occurring serious mental illness and substance use disorder. SB 1045 was revised in October 019 when California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 40 (SB 40) into law. SB 40 clarified the role of Assisted Outpatient Treatment, includes a Temporary Conservatorship and reduces the conservatorship time to six months.


The San Francisco Board of Supervisors and Mayor London Breed authorized local implementation of SB 1045 in the City and County of San Francisco on June 2019 and established a Housing Conservatorship Working Group to evaluate the effectiveness of the implementation of SB 1045.


The Working Group will be facilitated by the Department of Public Health and will submit reports to the Board of Supervisors and Mayor as outlined in Ordinance No. 108-19.
