Senior and Disability SRO Workgroup
The SRO Workgroup meets on the 1st Friday of the month, 1-3 pm, 1360 Mission Street, 4th floor.
Senior & Disability Action has been working to improve living conditions for seniors and people with disabilities in single-room occupancy hotels (SROs). With several organizational partners, we surveyed SRO residents and then put out a report in 2012. While it is several years old, unfortunately residents today relate dealing with many of the same issues. Click on these links to see the SRO Report Executive Summary and full report: Seniors and Adults with Disabilities in SROs. We are currently working to improve elevators in SROs, lower rents, and prevent speculation and displacement.
VICTORY! In partnership with SOMA Neighborhood Resource Council, activist Jordan Davis, and many others, the SRO Workgroup fought for the Mayor to spend $1 million to lower rents for SRO residents. In June 2020, she finally agreed! Look for yellow window signs around SOMA celebrating this win.
