Tough Decisions

Next Door, a homeless shelter in the Tenderloin, and Sanctuary, a homeless shelter in SoMa, are looking at having their hours slashed in a proposal for 20 percent in cuts for the Human Services Agency. All city departments were instructed by the mayor to come up with proposals for 20 percent in cuts. For the HSA, that cut equals a slashing of $18.7 million. The shelters would be open for 15 hours instead of 24 hours, which will save $152,427. HSA is trying to "preserve core permanent housing and services," said HSA director Trent Rhorer. [SF Examiner]
