  On the June 29th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our week long series on San Francisco’s homeless crisis by talking about how we got here and real solutions.

The city’s last official one-day count in 2015 put the homeless population at 6,686, but advocate say the number is much higher. Every year, San Francisco spends $240 million on homelessness, but the problem is only getting worse. What are real solutions? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Paul Boden, executive director of the Western Regional Advocacy Project

Jennifer Friedenbach, executive director of the Coalition on Homelessness
