Episcopal Community Services (ECS) has been providing services to unhoused or at-risk seniors in the South of Market Street (SOMA) neighborhood and beyond.
The Canon Kip Senior Center (CKSC) is San Francisco’s only senior center in the South of Market Street (SOMA) neighborhood, and serves a population from ages 60 on up, as well as adults with disabilities.
The seniors and adults with disabilities who access the CKSC have limited access to technology and rely on the center for socializing, health supports, and a healthy lunch.
Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program in San Francisco but actual income limits may differ for units at Canon Kip Community House.
