Veteran homeless advocate Jeff Kositsky has been at the helm of the new San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing since last summer. While nationally the homeless population is down by 14 percent, the city is facing growing numbers of homeless, up to an estimated 6,996 this year. As part of the SF Homeless Project, Forum talks with Kositsky about what strides the city has made in solving homelessness. We'll also get an update on the nontraditional shelters called "navigation centers," and hear why he has come out in support of safe injection sites for addicts and wet housing for alcoholics.
