SF mayor proposes new funding to ‘prevent homelessness in the first place’

By Carolyn Tyler,

San Francisco’s new Mayor London Breed is moving quickly to try to make good on her promise to attack the city’s homeless crisis.

She proposed investing in something she says can prevent some homelessness in the first place. She wants an infusion of city money to stabilize residential care facilities, commonly called board and care facilities. They house some of the city’s most vulnerable residents including the elderly and those with physical or mental health issues.

Ilina Moreno has lived at one facility, Victorian Manor, for three years since suffering a stroke and said, “That would be tragic if places like this start closing.”
