HOMELESSNESS IN SAN FRANCISCO: AN UPDATE WITH DIRECTOR JEFF KOSITSKY
Last November, BOMA welcomed the City’s newly appointed Homelessness & Supportive Housing Director Jeff Kositsky to educate members on the strategies the department would implement to address the homeless issues plaguing our city. He outlined a variety of initiatives aimed at transitioning the homeless from the streets to permanent housing and services. He suggested that BOMA have him return this year to provide an update on what is working and where challenges remain.
This is a must-attend event for BOMA members who have:
•Experienced homeless issues around their building, in their neighborhood or during their commute;
•Witnessed distasteful street behavior that made you and your tenants feel unsafe;
•Contacted the City and County of San Francisco for help with a homeless/street behavior issue and did not get immediate resolution;
•Questioned what exactly the City and County of San Francisco does to reduce homeless/street behavior issues.
Come hear how to most effectively navigate the homelessness issue and the resources available to you. There will be time for Q&A.
Jeff Kositsky is a nationally recognized leader in innovative homeless services and has over 20 years of experience managing nonprofit organizations in San Francisco.
