Once at one of the shelter sites you will have to enroll in CHANGES to reserve a shelter bed. Staff at the shelter will take your photo, name, date and location of birth, gender, ethnicity, and a social security number if you have one. You do not need to be a U.S. resident to use a San Francisco shelter.

If there are spaces in a shelter the staff will make a reservation for a bed for you.
