SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The San Francisco Outreach Team visited encampments in the Mission District Wednesday in its latest attempt to remove them from the city.

The encampments are located on 19th and Folsom outside the PG&E building.

The team is trying to give people information about shelters and navigation centers they can move to. They are also trying to help the homeless find a permanent place to live.

Some people who live in the homeless encampment told KRON4 they are not planning on leaving.

The homeless outreach team has been in the area for several weeks.

No date has been set yet for when the team will remove the encampment.
