Seeking Shelter

New, 4 comments

When the city began demolishing the old Transbay Terminal in September they didn't know where the 100 or so homeless people who used it as a shelter would go. The head of security for the Ferry Building and its merchants think the homeless have sough shelter in the Ferry Building. Multiple stay-away orders have been filed. Some business owners have said that there's an increase in loitering, panhandling and theft. "After the Transbay Terminal closed, people scattered around South of Market," said Bob Offer-Westort of the Collection on Homelessness. "The City really failed to take advantage of an opportunity to house the people who lived there." [SF Examiner]
