With old 10-year plan to fix homelessness expiring, time for a new one
New decade, a new plan to end chronic homelessness.
San Francisco set an ambitious goal a decade ago: to fix or cure the situation of people stuck on the streets. With the city's 10-year plan expiring, officials are creating a new one, according to the San Francisco Examiner.
And it will be different.
The homeless count in San Francisco has remained "flat," according to the newspaper, with 6,455 homeless people counted last year. That's an increase of about 200 from 2005.
The old ten-year plan called for 3,000 supportive housing units. About 2,800 were built, the newspaper reported.
Homeless advocates agree that the city should step up its resources, but complain that politicians continue to use homeless people as a handy tool whenever the need arises.

Whatever that plan is, there will be no improvement for either the homeless or the taxpayers.
More homeless and more expensive is my prediction.

Didn’t even read their plan, but I’ve got $100 that says the problem is worse in 10 years than it is now.

With Obama in the WH and controlling dozens of alphabet agencies all bent on destroying the economy, you can bet your last nickel that there will be more homeless people than you can find quarters for.

Yep, the end result will be more homeless and less money for the residents.

Thank you for referencing that article nickcarraway. I recently saw a related FR thread concerning Utah also "ending" homelessness, by providing unused homes for such people.
Utah is Ending Homelessness by Giving People Homes
My reservation about these programs is that "ending" or "curing" homelessness by providing homes for homeless may get rid of the "symptom," but does not necessarily address the causes of why people wind up homeless in the first place.
San Francisco is twice as communist as the old Soviet Union was — SF has 10-year plans that fail rather than having 5-year plans that fail.

The rest of the middle class and many of the rich are about to be homeless. Will free apartments be built for them?

They will give them brand new shopping carts and a book on dumpster diving. The liberal way.

So they took thousands of people off the streets and into those 2800 housing units. Shouldn't the homeless number have been reduced by at least 2800 instead of increasing by 200? How can they say the homeless count remained flat?

Looks like “fuzzy math” to me.

It’s called “Liberal math”.
Homeless has increased by their estimates by 3000 since 2005,but it looks better in print when they say it’s the same almost as it was 2005 just an increase of 200
(sound of liberals clapping each other on the back what a wonderful job we did)

The government in SF has forgotten the basic tenets of governing.
If you want MORE of something, you subsidize it.
If you want LESS of something, you tax it.
They should be taxing the homeless.
Feed them to the illegals

Place the homeless in all the liberal homes. Problem solved right away.
