Felton Engagement Specialist Team (FEST)
FEST is comprised of Engagement Specialists who are skilled case managers working in collaboration with the San Francisco Departments of Public Health, Public Works, Homelessness and Supportive Housing, and the San Francisco Police Department.
The collaboration provides rapid response, community engagement, service linkage and relationship-building assistance to San Franciscans in the Justin Herman Plaza, Castro, Showplace Square, Mission, and Civic Center neighborhoods. The group focuses on those who are insecurely housed or not housed at all.
The Engagement Specialists provide outreach and service linkage to support clients by addressing any combination of substance use, mental health, and physical health needs. The team also attempts to secure temporary or permanent housing and promotes wellness, recovery, and safety for eligible clients.
