In his new role brainstorming solutions to the city’s stubborn homelessness problem, Dufty has come up with some pretty novel thoughts.

In San Francisco, the spaces under freeways are popular, and groups of homeless people sometimes band together for their mutual protection.

Craigslist ads and open houses can provoke hundreds of responses from people ready to compete for their share of the city&rsquo;s scarce square footage, even at times willing to pay for months of rent in advance. For people without cash, things are a lot harder. Among those who find it most difficult are chronically homeless veterans.</p> Tue, 14 Aug 2012 23:52:41 +0000 Mariel Waloff 14450 at http://kalw.org San Francisco races to house homeless veterans in 100 days
