Humans on the Streets of San Francisco

780 people are ahead of Manuel Rochin who’s waiting for a spot in a San Francisco homeless shelter. 

A San Francisco Chronicle journalist met him on June 18 when the paper sent 3 dozen journalists to document 24 hours in the city’s surging homelessness problem. Despite spending $300 million on homelessness each year, the city hasn’t found any effective solutions. 

As rents soar, residents find the streets are their only living space. (The lucky ones live in RVs or vans, but they’re regularly chased away by police.)

The must-read feature offers indelible images of the human beings left behind by a prosperous city.
