On a side note Sam shares that as part of his previous job experience he had to walk around the Tenderloin (SF) and count the number of occasions he could identify piss or crap on the street.  Respect Sam Dodge, respect!

  • Interesting article J, definitely about awareness….Bring from cali, everytime we come through the Bay, always saddened to hear others comment about how they always see homelessness stand out more in SF than in other major cities. It’s relative I know, but I’m glad to know there is a long term solution being worked on from a realistic and perception standpoint.
  • Great episode, good to hear that along with expressing frustration, many people are moving forward to offer solutions and HOPE for the severe homeless issue in the bay!
