Visible Homelessness in SF: A Quick Breakdown of Causes

Some potential notes about "busing of homeless people by other state governments"

San Francisco periodically does a "Point in Time" survey of the homeless population. The last one was in 2017, with an N=1089. 

  • 69% reported they were living in SF when they became homeless 
  • 21% said they were living in California (but not SF) 
  • 10% said they were living out of state

However, San Francisco itself has its own bussing program called "Homeward Bound", which may make the 10% who said they were living out of state hard to interpret.
