The “Tech Tax” Will Not Solve San Francisco’s Housing Problems

A good start would be a detailed accounting of the $241 million budget for homeless services. This represents approximately $32,000 per homeless person per year. But what results can be shown for this? And how much is actually spent helping persons in need, as opposed to paying the salaries & benefits of bureaucratic positions? I suspect S.F. homeless services is akin to those charities which devote 30 cents or so of every donated dollar to needy people and the rest to overhead.
