San Francisco Sets Five-Year Plan to Drastically Reduce Homelessness
The city of San Francisco has announced a "Five-Year Strategic Framework" that sets ambitious targets to reduce homelessness by 2022.
Kevin Fagan reports on the new plan, calling it San Francisco's most ambitious homelessness strategy in a decade. The thinking on the plan is too bundle all the city's homeless strategies to better coordinate services.
"That coordination will come through what he has dubbed the Homelessness Response System, which will tie together the 15 independent databases now being used to track homeless people through housing, medical and other services," according to Fagan.
The plan will also expand the Moving On Initiative and calls for 1,367 new supportive housing units.
