The Board of Supervisors finds and declares the following:
(a) In 2004, the Board of Supervisors created the Shelter Monitoring Committee that is required to provide the Mayor, the Board of Supervisors, and others with accurate and comprehensive information about the conditions in and operations of shelters funded by the City.
(b) After conducting numerous site visits of City-funded shelters and after investigating many complaints it received from shelter clients, the Shelter Monitoring Committee found that the City's shelter system lacks comprehensive standards of care to be provided to clients utilizing shelter services.
(c) In order to ensure that all City-funded shelter operators meet minimum standards of care in the shelter system, and that all shelter clients are treated with dignity and respect and are provided with a clean, healthy, and safe shelter stay, the Board of Supervisors hereby adopts the following contractual requirements that apply to all shelter operators in San Francisco.
