The California homelessness crisis

Substitute 'Seattle' for 'San Francisco', and you can use this report in both places.  I am old enough to remember when Seattle had numerous SRO/flophouses downtown and that went a long way to ensure that the indigent and chronic alcoholics had a roof over their head.  I think the difficulty of building more housing is just as bad up here as the Bay area.

Quote from: NPR
The number of homeless San Franciscans has only grown since then to more than 8,000 people,

Having been to San Francisco numerous times, I have a hard time believing the number is that low.
