#SanDiego is another #California #homeless disaster

San Diego’s homelessness crisis is more entrenched than the city’s elite leaders would have you believe.

Federal homeless headcounts show the city’s homeless population has ranked among the 15 largest in the nation since 2007, the first year officials with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development started compiling such data.

Only six places added more homeless residents over the same time period, according to numbers disclosed in HUD’s annual homelessness report to Congress.

The figures are drawn from headcounts coordinated by “Continuums of Care” — local planning bodies tasked with orchestrating homeless services in a given city, county, metropolitan area, or even an entire state.

The yearly “point-in-time” tallies are held on a single night in January, with the help of thousands of volunteers across roughly 500 municipalities.

California elites continue to blame homelessness on the state’s housing affordability crisis.

They may never get a clue.
