Thanks to the San Francisco Examiner for their coverage on Mayor Lee’s 2017-2018 budget proposal. Our own Mary Kate Bacalao, Director of Public Funding, was featured among local residents and social program leaders calling for an increase in funding for homeless and other social services.

Here’s a short excerpt:

“Mary Kate Bacalao, director of public funding for Larkin Street Youth Services, a nonprofit that works with homeless youth, drove home the point that with increased funding comes results. “Investments work to end youth homelessness,” she said, referring to the the point-in-time homeless count released Friday. “We saw a 13 percent decrease in youth homelessness. That’s accompanied by a 15 percent increase in investment by The City between 2013 and 2017.”
