San Francisco’s budget picture remains cloudy and things are not getting any easier for the homeless.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Human Services Agency Director Trent Rhorer has prepared a memo he will disclose on Thursday with suggestions on what homeless services will be cut.
It is expected to include major cut backs at San Francisco’s four homeless drop-in centers. Instead of offering the homeless a variety of services, such as access to showers and meals, “all that would be gone and they would just offer reservations for shelters.”
The Next Door Shelter in the Tenderloin would also have access to beds during the day eliminated. And another $1 million would be cut from supportive housing.
Rhorer tells the Chronicle, “we’ve had so many years of reductions, we don’t have any easy choices.”
The San Francisco Human Services Commission will hold a special meeting on the proposals Thursday morning.
