San Francisco supervisors unanimously adopted legislation that will offer all people experiencing homelessness in the city a safe place to sleep.A Place for All, the ordinance by gay District 8 Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, was two years in the making.

At the supervisors June 7 meeting, board members did make some changes before voting 11-0 for the ordinance.The original proposal, introduced back in 2020, failed to make it out of the Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee, which instead supported safe sleeping sites, or sanctioned outdoor camping spaces.

This newer version includes a broader array of options while placing less emphasis on, but not doing away with, congregate housing such as shelters.
