A social facility is any place where social services, as defined here, are conducted:

Social work is a profession and a social science committed to the pursuit of social justice, to quality of life, and to the development of the full potential of each individual, group and community in a society

Specific examples of a social facility are drug clinics, workshops for the physically disabled, and homeless shelters. There are no restrictions as to who provides the services.

How to tag

Use amenity=social_facility to label a feature that provides a social service. To capture additional information, supplement the feature with additional tags as defined in this wiki.

Different types of social facilities

Social facilities come in many different types and can be the location of where services are provided or where they are administered from. Types of social facilities are defined by the level of care or service that is provided and whether people reside at the location. To define whom is served by the facility, use the social_facility:for=* tag as described below.

For features/POIs that focus on treatment of specific acute medical conditions, such as those services normally delivered by a hospital, the amenity=hospital amenity tag should be used.

For features/POIs that focus on disaster relief, such as a temporary emergency shelter, it is suggested that the Humanitarian_OSM_Tags be used. This is still an evolving model and comments are welcome in the discussion page.

Tag Icon Description
social_facility=group_home Group home.svg A Group Home is a residence organized around a certain demographic and provides social and medical services, such as leisure activities or meals, and some form of supervision. Examples include retirement homes for elderly, residences for children/juveniles who cannot live with their families, halfway houses for people with addictions or minor conflicts with the law (wikipedia:Group home).

The OSM use does not limit the size of such home, which however can be tagged with capacity=*.

Note: Between Oct 2010 - Jun 2016, this value subsumed the Nursing Homes as defined below. If you know a Nursing Home still tagged Group Home, not fitting the definition above, please migrate the tag. Please check each case individually, Automated edits are discouraged.
