Affordable Housing in the Marina
Currently a city non-profit, Community Housing Partnership, would like to convert an old Motel on Lombard near the Presidio into a dormitory for former foster youth. Youth that "graduate" out of foster care often have extremely high rates of homelessness if they are not given the proper support. Imagine when you were eighteen and were not on your way to college and your parents said - "your completely on your own now." That does happen, and some children can handle it, but many foster youth can not.
The neighbors of the Marina are predictably fighting this proposal because they think the youth will bring more crime and lawlessness. Shame on the Marina, and shame on the leaders from that area.
