A discussion of what's happening on the street level to resolve homelessness
San Francisco's homeless population hasn't grown significantly in recent years, but tent encampments and increasing gentrification have raised tensions over public safety, human dignity and quality-of-life issues. New ideas like modular housing and Navigation Centers show promise, but are current resources and policies robust enough to reduce the number of people living on our streets? If not, what needs to change?
Panelists include Jennifer Friedenbach, Executive Director, Coalition on Homelessness, Sam Dodge, SF Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing; Julie Chronister, PhD, CRC, Coordinator, Rehabilitation Counseling Program, San Francisco State University, Don Falk, CEO, Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation.
