- Help homeless, keep people housed, create more housing
By Libby Schaaf, Ed Lee and Sam Liccardo - Sunday Jun 25, 2017
Mayors of Oakland, San Francisco and San Jose have vowed to help homeless, keep people housed, create more housing While we work to transition unsheltered residents into supportive and permanent housing, the city is improving cleanups in and around encampments and adding health and hygiene services on site. Based on the lessons we learned from the Compassionate Communities pilot program, we are adding a dedicated encampment cleaning crew, as well as providing serviced portable toilets and trash pickup. The city is expanding outreach to those living on the streets and suffering from mental illness or addiction. [...] centers offer low-barrier-to-entry facilities with services that help homeless residents transition to self-sufficiency. A second Navigation Center will allow the city to bring an additional 300 residents a year into safe, supportive housing, doubling the number of residents we serve. While the new Navigation Center is being built, the city is working to identify an appropriate site to offer a Safe Haven Outdoor Navigation Center — an outdoor site with security, sanitation and intensive services to facilitate access to permanent housing and other supports. Thanks to two new voter-approved bonds, Oakland will have 12 times more money to create protected affordable housing than two years ago. Property owners subject to rent control now must petition the city to raise rents above the annual allowable increase tied to the federal Consumer Price Index. [...] every resident struggling with disabilities, mental illness or addiction deserves to be treated with dignity and care. The surge of opiate abuse and addiction on the street, decreasing support from the federal government for affordable housing programs and the generational lack of home building has placed the Bay Area in the position we are today. Last July, I created the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing, which has a singular focus of ending homelessness for every individual it touches. [...] we launched our Encampment Resolution Teams, whose mission is to move individuals from unsanitary living conditions to safe, stable situations. Among those will be the first Navigation Center tailored for individuals experiencing mental health issues and addiction. For families experiencing homelessness, we are adding nearly $2 million to open a new shelter and $3 million in rapid re-housing subsidies to avoid displacement. By the end of this year, we have vowed to end chronic homelessness among military veterans, and by 2019 we are committed to finding housing for 800 families experiencing homelessness through our Heading Home campaign. San Jose struggles to find dollars to build affordable housing in the nation’s most expensive construction market. Beyond the horrific human toll, we can quantify the cost: $62,473 per individual a year to house just 10 percent of the biggest consumers of fire and police response, emergency rooms and jails. After years of nonprofit and public agencies tripping over each other, we’ve found that a focused, coordinated approach to getting chronically homeless individuals housed benefits all. In 2015, the city of San Jose required market-rate developers to include affordable housing in their new developments and pay impact fees that will generate $20 million annually for the city. Housing Trust Silicon Valley leverages millions of dollars in philanthropy to finance affordable housing.
