Ending Homelessness in San Francisco Will Cost $1.4B, City Says

What would it take to house every single homeless person in San Francisco? That question has long vexed politicians, advocates for the unhoused and ordinary citizens.

But new analysis paints a gloomy picture of the costs.

Ending unsheltered homelessness would require vast increases in housing, shelter and prevention services, according to the report from the city’s Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing and homelessness consultancy firm Focus Strategies.

That would cost the city another $1.45 billion over three years. And it would take over $410 million each year after that to keep the programs running.

The city’s latest homeless census in February counted 7,754 people experiencing homelessness in San Francisco. Most—4,397 of them—were sleeping outside.
