Well, bless Mayor Bass' heart but she's going to learn that chronic homelessness is way more complicated than subsidized housing. More Section 8 funding would be a very good thing. Public housing is also useful. But for the chronic hard core, the guys you see tripping out on the city's sidewalks and shooting up in the parks, those people cannot be housed without tailored treatment of some sort. Even if they don't continue to commit criminal acts the combination of substance abuse (particularly meth) and varying degrees of mental illness makes them impossible to live around in a community setting. A good many have families that can no longer allow them to visit.
