Please attend an informational meeting at Bird & Beckett
with Amy Farah Weiss of the Saint Francis Homelessness Challenge

She will address:
•  what can be done to achieve secure sleep, hygienic toileting and services for San Francisco’s unhoused neighbors
•  the innovations already being put into play
•  the public policies that can make a difference.

7,000 people live on the streets in this wealthy city.

A recent survey found that among its respondents:
80% were living with untreated psychological disabilities
70% were people living with physical disabilities.

60% became houseless after displacement from long-time homes and neighborhoods
60% were women ages 24-40
30% were people of color
30% were men
10% were trans and non-gender-conforming

Become better informed.
Add your imagination and energies to the effort.
Lend your influence on the behalf of our unhoused neighbors.
