The homeless problem in San Francisco has escalated to crisis-level despite increased spending. Beyond Homeless is a movement created by a group of organizations that believes there’s a better way to solve the problem. By treating the root causes of homelessness on an individual basis, we can help people move off the streets for good. Similar programs are already underway in other cities and enjoying remarkable success. The people living on the streets of San Francisco may be homeless, but they’re not hopeless. Let’s pull together to get this crisis under control.
More spending does not reduce homelessness.
We are now focusing on a new approach to solving homelessness in a system that seems broken.
