Purpose No one should have to suffer or die alone.
History Maitri is a Sanskrit word meaning compassionate friendship and was formed as a response to the early AIDS Epidemic. We remain a hospice and respite care facility. Maîtri is a 15 bed residence providing a high level of supervision and support for homeless/low income residents of San Francisco living with HIV/AIDS. For the calendar year 2015 Maitri served 46 residents, 20 of whom passed away, 23 of whom were discharged and 3 of whom remain in residence.We have been able to provide a safety and care and comfort to our residents who may not have otherwise had these things at the end of there lives otherwise. we have also provided these things so that our residents can recover the health and strength and return to the community. We offer compassion at a critical time for the most marginalized in our community.
Goals The theme is data collect that will enable clear accurate and consistent reporting to our funders, help with fund raising and program planning and allow for the development of a system that facilitates efficiency and ease for our dedicated volunteers.
Key Features bridging reporting capabilities from old and hopefully phased out database, allowing social service staff to work in one database only, with some updated enhancements for data collection to ensure data collection
