I'm not 100% certain about the finances but
" By 2016, total spending (including housing and treatment) was believed to be $241 million annually"
At some point isn't it just cheaper to find a way to house them and put them on disability while working to integrate the mentally stable back into
"In San Francisco, a minimum wage worker would have to work approximately 4.7 full-time jobs to be able to rent a two-bedroom apartment. While
homelessness in the SF Bay Area is significant, "in no state can a full-time minimum wage worker afford a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom rental unit at
Fair Market Rent."
I imagine this is part of the problem. Looks like we need a few more rent controlled apartments for the low income and disabled sense we can't burden
the capitalist business Owners with any responsibility to fix the problem.
As of 2014, the city is believed to have approximately 7,000 homeless residents.
San Francisco is currently spending approximately $34,000 per year per individual on the homeless. It looks like politicians are good at creating
bloated programs that don't actually solve anything. Your taxes working hard for anyone but those who are actually homeless.
