Officially, ten percent of San Franciscoans live in poverty, and homelessness is a massive problem in the city with the third highest median income in the country. There are more than 6,000 homeless individuals in San Francisco -- and probably more than 8,000. This fact is all the more disturbing considering that San Francisco is ranked the 11th meanest city for the homeless in the country by the National Coalition for the Homeless.
