Of San Francisco’s 404 privately owned single room occupancy hotels 30 reported that at least half their rooms were empty. Many had 100% vacancy rates.
If those 1,827 rooms were made available to the cities homeless it could have a serious impact on the problem.
Statistics were gathered to locate the six SROs with the highest vacancy rates. Then they were mapped and tagged with Housing Displacement Facts specific to each location.
The intervention strives to shed light on displacement.
