An Examination of Homelessness through a Policy Lens

5:30 p.m. | Tuesday, August 22, 2017

The SPUR Urban Leaders Council met for an evening of Drinks and Discourse on homelessness and their practical solutions for a path forward. We developed a better understanding of this critical issue facing our city: What are the causes of homelessness, how did it get so bad, how does San Francisco compare to other cities and is the city's approach to homelessness working? SPUR Director Christine Johnson joined us to discuss these issues in the context of the housing affordability and availability crisis.


The Urban Leaders Council is for those individuals who provide core support for the work that SPUR does. Those who have made life estate gifts and significant donations to the SPUR Campaign for the Urban Center and SPUR Benefactors are also invited to join the Urban Leaders Council.
