Tipping Point’s policy team builds cross-sector partnerships for the common good. By mining the experience of grantees and working side by side with local government, we leverage the flexibility of philanthropic dollars to create scalable change.
Our first initiative, announced in May 2017, is a $100 million effort to cut chronic homelessness in San Francisco in half over the next five years. This represents the largest amount of private money raised to address homelessness in the City’s history.
In partnership with the City of San Francisco, we will implement a three-pronged strategy to:
- Create new housing units
- Attack the root causes of homelessness, including improving the mental health, child welfare and criminal justice systems
- Boost the capacity of the public sector
