Homelessness

Crack down on homeless people—or prevent people from becoming homeless?

Two very different approaches to housing policy were under discussion this week.

It would just take funds away from permanent housing—and allow even more sweeps.

No pre-natal care. Nowhere to go. And yet, thanks to community action, mama and child are okay.

Breed’s Tenderloin crackdown goes to the supes in high-stakes vote

What is the mayor's actual plan for a neighborhood in crisis, other than more cops? It's hard to figure that out.

Breed’s Tenderloin plan is just a rehash of cruel policies that never worked

Using police to solve social and health problems has failed for decades; why is San Francisco ready to do it again?
