We publish lots of stories on homelessness here at Hoodline. Our commitment is to cover neighborhood news, and with that kind of local coverage, we encounter issues of homelessness as much as you do.
If you live or work in San Francisco, you’re not surprised to see a row of tents on the sidewalk. You know which streets carry the stale smell of urine, which BART entrances to avoid, and which intersections to expect panhandlers.
You may have felt annoyed, compassionate, confused, sad, and scared all within a few blocks’ walk, and you want something done: more housing, more sweeps, more shelters, more services, less homelessness.
This week, Hoodline is participating in the San Francisco Homeless Project media blitz. As in June of this year, we're joining over 80 Bay Area media publications to draw attention to one of our city’s defining challenges and to call for solutions.
As we continue to shine a light on the city agencies, social services, and elected officials that are addressing these complex issues in San Francisco, we’re cementing our commitment to covering homelessness, because for as long as homelessness remains a part of our neighborhoods, it will remain a part of our coverage.
Keep an eye on Hoodline.com for special stories throughout this week, and follow along on social media using the hashtag #SFHomelessProject.
