And this is the recent past, when lots of gov’mint cars used to park here – this area was being used, contrary to any claims from any Department Heads:

And what the hell, why not take the tour, April 25, 2018?

“Construction of a new Navigation Center is currently in the works at Division Circle at Divison St. and South Van Ness Ave.

Join us for a tour of the construction site and to learn more about San Francisco’s Navigation Centers.

The City’s game-changing Navigation Centers are proving to be a successful model to provide shelter and services for homeless people living in street encampments, offering them not just beds, showers and meals, but also health care intensive case management and other support on their jounrey toward more stable housing.

Tours are free. However, space is limited and pre-registration is required.

Personal protective equipment is required to enter the construction site. Guests will be asked to sign a safety waiver prior to starting the tour.

Please meet outside 30 Van Ness at 1 p.m. to start the tour. We will provide free transportation to the project site.”

Is It Really a “Stereotype” That Homeless People in San Francisco “Come Here From Somewhere Else?”

Here you go:

Ad blitz in transit hubs designed to break homeless stereotypes by Heather Knight

Starting Monday, there will be even more. A new ad campaign produced by the Coalition on Homelessness will go up in public transportation hubs and on Muni buses with the intention of breaking stereotypes about homeless people. You know, that they’re freeloaders who come here from somewhere else…

So, aren’t most homeless people in San Francisco (and, of course, most non-homeless people as well) “from somewhere else?”

The answer to that question is yes, yes they are.

So, does lying about facts help to “break” “stereotypes,” Coalition on Homelessness?

I think not.

And that means that asking convoluted poll questions designed to get a desired  answer, well I don’t see how that helps.

Sorry.

But what this kind of thing does do is reinforce stereotypes about certain non-profits in San Francisco…
