Abstract: 

This 46-page report presents results from the 2015 point-in-time count of the number and characteristics of homeless persons in San Francisco.  On the night of January 29, 2015, a total of 7,539 homeless individuals were counted in the City of San Francisco. Of those, 1,569 were unaccompanied children and transition-age-youth (TAY). While the overall number of people counted in the Point-in-Time Count increased between 2013 and 2015, the number of unaccompanied children and youth declined. The 2013 Unique Youth Point-in-Time Count found 914 unaccompanied children and youth, while the 2015 Unique Youth Point-in-Time Count resulted in 853. This decrease was due in part to a strict de-duplication method used in 2015. The report also presents findings from the homeless survey on respondent demographics, education and employment, duration and recurrence of homelessness, primary cause of homelessness, experiences with the criminal justice system, health status, services and assistance, and social connections and youth assets.
