When Will SF End Unsheltered Homelessness?

On March 21, the Board of Supervisors reviewed “A Place for All” Implementation Plan prepared by the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing with a price tag of $1.4 billion.  The supervisors grilled the HSH representatives on the exorbitant cost of their proposed plan.  And other speakers pointed out that RescueSF, a grassroots resident and small business group, proposed an alternative that cost $1 billion less than the HSH plan.

Legislation adopted last year created a City Shelter Policy.  San Francisco has nearly 4400 persons living unsheltered on our streets.  The deaths, addiction, and other serious health conditions among them continue to grow.  The costs of street sleeping (in human lives and needed services) overwhelm our City’s capacity.  When will our City elected officials fund & provision enough shelter – as required by law?  For more information and to make your voice heard, visit RescueSF – Advocacy.
