Low-income housing agencies in San Francisco?

I am assisting a low-income young adult (nearly 19 years old) who needs housing in San Francisco. (He has disabilities and his support system is in SF -- he knows it's cheaper elsewhere but for right now it's not practical to move him out of the City). He has SSI benefits ($649.34, yikes! so low), and will work part-time. I will supplement as I am able maybe $150 a month. We know about Craig's List and shared housing. We have about 10 months until his current situation will change for him to be on a waiting list.

So far on my list I have: the Mayor's Office on Housing, Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corp., and the Tenderloin Housing Clinic. What am I missing?

I don't know San Francisco at all, but I do see that it has an operational 2-1-1 service. I would recommend giving them a shout - if you are outside the San Francisco area, they have a 1-800 number (1-800-273-6222); and a quick look at their online database gave me this list.

I have a friend who works at the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency. They've put together a "list of steps to follow when trying to help low-income families find affordable housing." Also, this site looks like it might be the equivalent for San Francisco.

Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (application info)
Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center (the Housing Director there is a friend of mine, let me know if you want more info).
Bridge Housing
