Sadly there is..."A worldview that scapegoats the struggling and suffering and that sees illness as inadequacy. The ultimate test of our country’s character is not the power we give the strong, but the strength we give the weak." Joe Kennedy III
The official count of homeless in San Francisco in 2013 was 6,436. Now, according to Curbed it is estimated to be 9,500. Karl Robillard, St. Anthony's senior manager of communications, says "The dining room line is a social barometer...you will know what part of the social and economic safety net is missing by standing outside that line." Today people young and old and of all ethnicities stand in that line. For a closer look at some of these people read Inside San Francisco's Housing Crisis.
