Thank you to EdSource for interviewing us for their article about youth homelessness in the Bay Area. San Francisco is home to tech start-ups and business industries but unfortunately, it is also home to unaffordable housing — a leading cause of student homelessness.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
“No one knows exactly where these students live in San Francisco, but 300 a night sleep at the Larkin Street Youth Services shelter. Hundreds of others sleep in parks or under freeways, on friends’ couches, or trade sex for a place to sleep, according to Larkin Street’s executive director, Sherilyn Adams.”
