The Bay Area’s homeless population grew 9% since 2020 and is today the third largest concentration of homeless people in the U.S. Furthermore, the Bay Area’s failure to scale its inventory of emergency shelters has created the least sheltered homeless population in the U.S., even when compared with regions that have larger per-capita homeless populations. The Bay Area Council’s Committee on Homelessness brings together diverse regional leaders in business, government, and the non-profit sectors to influence policies aimed at finding scalable solutions to this intergenerational challenge.
Goal 1: Reduce regional rate of unsheltered homelessness (75%) to national average (30%) within three years
Goal 2: Expand access to mental health and sober-living facilities
Goal 3: Streamline access to existing state, county, and city homeless prevention services
