For years, “tolerant” San Franciscans have complained about homeless tent cities sprouting in alarming numbers around town — and now they have statistics to back up those complaints.
The city’s biennial one-night homeless count, to be released Friday, shows that since 2015 the western half of the city and significant residential strips of the rest of San Francisco have seen sharp increases in people living on the street.
From the western side of town to the city’s northeastern tip, more people are now without permanent shelter. The percentage rises were startling.
