Man on the Street: A Story of Homelessness in San Francisco

15 min
Perry Foster lived in early 2016 on Division Street between Harrison and Bryant streets. He was from Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he was still a legend among high school classmates as the football star who led his team to an undefeated season and a state championship. Foster died of a heroin overdose on April 11, 2018.  (Dan Brekke/KQED)

Homelessness in Bay Area has become a common sight; one we even try to avoid. When KQED reporter Dan Brekke interviewed one man named Perry Foster, he didn’t think it would lead him on a search for more details about who this person is, his accomplishments, his goals and the barriers he faced. As part of KQED’s SF Homeless Project, we learn today that everyone has a story.
