Back in 2002, "State law requires counties to provide at least $320 in cash or services to qualified poor or disabled homeless individuals. San Francisco pays cash, ranging from $320 to $395 per month. The City and non-profit agencies also provide housing, shelter, and meal services to some homeless individuals."
There was a vote to lower the amount of cash and give more care in "The Care Not Cash Initiative" back in 2002.
Does anyone know how much cash homeless are currently getting?
What are your thoughts on this?
this is a link with more information from 2002 and the proposed initiative.
