Your Call: How is San Francisco addressing its ongoing homeless crisis?

Jan 12, 2017


What has changed for San Francisco’s homeless population under the city’s new homeless director Jeff Kositsky?

Last year, Mayor Ed Lee announced plans to launch a new city department to permanently end homelessness for at least 8,000 individuals with an annual budget of $220 million. The Mayor’s Prop K would have expanded services, but it didn’t pass in November. How will this affect efforts to tackle homelessness?
