Skip to comments.San Francisco, Homeless Encampment. A new plan to turn the whole city into a shelter system might finally be the breaking point for residents.

San Franciscos hotels and motels are slowly emptying of the homeless people that the city placed there during the Covid-19 pandemic. The city simply cant afford the $260 per night, per person, price tag of housing approximately 2,000 peoplejust a portion of the estimated 8,000 people who live on the street. Where will they go? Elected officials have come up with a new plan: turn the whole city into a network of homeless encampments.
In June, city officials and departments developed a list of 42 potential sites that could be equipped with spaces for tents and mobile bathrooms. The urban campers, most with addiction and mental health issues, would be provided with free delivered meals and other services. Several sites were erected, including one outside City Hall and one in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood. Among the other proposed locations: 25 public elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as a Boys and Girls Club, city parks, and recreation areas.
Could San Francisco really turn school grounds and other public spaces into dozens of city-sanctioned homeless encampments? The prospect sounds inconceivable, but the ball began rolling last week, when Supervisor Rafael Mandelman introduced A Place For All, legislation that would establish Safe Sleeping Sites around the city. The Department of Homelessness and Supportive Services (HSH) would create the sites and figure out the funding. Although touted as a temporary measure, they would remain for two years, then reevaluated annually. The long temporary timeframe can be explained by the failure of a site that had already been attempted at Everett Middle School. The intended occupants wanted a more permanent place to stay, so passed on the offer.

The citizens of San Francisco could always send the homeless to live at the Pelosi mansion.
Not the Bee?

yet they will continue to vote liberal...
I agree. Just open her doors during the holidays and let all the homeless in to eat all her ice cream
Forget Antifa and BLM. Liberal women are the ones destroying this country.
From the “What could possibly go wrong?” files.
Sounds like a plan. I’m sure it will all work out just fine.
This is a great idea.
Every homeless person in the country could head to San Francisco.
The city should greet them with flowers in their hair. :-)
And all he won was American Samoa. Lol!
Put them in the St. Francis hotel. They’ll love it. Room service and a spa.
Hope that includes drinks from the mini-bar, porno movies from pay per view, and room service meals, for that $260 price tag.
All of the above apart from alcoholic drinks apparently
Can you imagine living like a King in a nice hotel for 6 months all expenses paid at no cost to yourself just for being homeless?
Only in San Francisco folks. Only in San Francisco.
When I go on vacation I usually stay at Comfort Inn and Suites. Perfectly nice hotel room and about half of that $260 per night.
You can check out whenever you want, but you can never leave.
Homeless = Degenerate
The very definition of insanity. Trying the same thing over and over and expectecting different results.
