More Than 3,500 Homeless People Live on SF Streets: Human Services Agency

3,505 homeless people currently live on the streets of San Francisco, according to a new report from the city's Human Services Agency.

The "Point in Time Homeless Count" is conducted by the HSA every two years.

But 3,505 people is only a fraction of the city's total homeless population. This year's count found a total of 6,686 people between living on the street, shelters, hospitals, jails, transitional housing, or residential treatment. That figure is up from the 6,436 people who were counted in 2013's report.

A whopping 57 percent of people counted reside in District 6, which includes SoMa, the Tenderloin and Treasure Island.

The City & County of San Francisco has received a grant of approximately $27 million from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development to support many of its homeless services in 2015.
