San Francisco SROs, or single-room-occupancy hotels, often fail to help formerly homeless people due to ramshackle conditions. Here’s what it would take to build better housing.
Supportive housing is the linchpin of San Francisco’s effort to pull homeless people off the streets. The idea is that the city’s most vulnerable can rebuild their lives, but that they need help with challenges like poor health, joblessness and drug addiction.
