SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Businesses in San Francisco’s busiest shopping destination are getting together to try and do something about the chronic homeless problem in their area.
The project is called Union Square Cares, which launches Tuesday. The goal is to help get transients off the streets in their business improvement district and into services.
The organization is also helping tourists, who might need to ask for directions or have questions.
KRON’s Maureen Kelly reports the plan also involves educating tourists and shoppers about how they can help.
