TOWARDS A COMPASSIONATE CITY
A Conversation About Homeless Encampments
BETWEEN STREET AND HOME: Interim Solutions to Homelessness in San Francisco
Part of a three-part series taking a closer look at homeless encampments and interim measures for addressing the homeless crisis, this panel will explore the current state of San Francisco's shelter system and recent pilot programs such as the Navigation Center and the pop-up Pier 80 shelter. We also will consider alternatives to shelters such as tiny home villages, legal encampments, and mega-shelters/campuses to help us answer how we might best address the most immediate needs of those experiencing homelessness in the city.
