The San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing this week announced a new plan, modeled after success in cities like Houston and Salt Lake City. Its goal is to cut the numbers of chronic homeless in half. Head of San Francisco homeless services Jeff Kositsky joins us to explain how the new “Five-Year Strategic Framework” will work, including how it will tie together the 15 separate systems now used to track homeless individuals for services into one intake assessment.
