announcer: building a better bay area -- moving forward, finding solutions. this is abc 7 news. karina: it has been almost seven months since the emergency initiative began in san francisco's tenderloin area which was plagued by drug use and homelessness. since then, the city has been able to house more than 1000 people living on the streets. larry: today, we continue our series focusing on the challenges the city still faces to clean up the area. >> our role is to engage people on the street and help get them into housing, whether it's shelter, permanent supported housing. we have about 9000 units.
we serve about 10,000 people in those units. therisigconcentrioof the tenderf market in the mission because that tends to be where the sro is. that's unique to san francisco. >> sros were designed often for middle-class people. they operated from 1907 to 1930. they were built one bathroom for 10 residents and that worked in the days when half the residents were merchant seamen and long drive truckers who were not in the hotel for a long time. for a long time, it was at the heart of the successful housing in san francisco. starting in the 60's, demand went down and hotels fell apart. people coming in our formally homeless. there's a lot of challenges with that population. if you have acute mental health needs, mental health is a challenge. >> a number of people who
experience homelessness need that support. it could be helping somebody get into treatment, helping with job searches. we have some legacy buildings that are sros that need work. they are very old buildings. as we moved out of covid, we are looking for buildings with private bathrooms and kitchenettes because that's what people really thrive on. >> welcome to your new home. >> i'm moving. i've been housed at the baldwin for the last 10 years. i like it. >> we are at the garland hotel. a beautiful hotel.
i call it sro 2.0. it has all private baths. these have microwaves and sinks. most sros do not have the capability to have any cooking. >> what i like best is my own bathroom. i can take a shower any time. i don't have to wait for nobody or worry about it being all nasty and all that. that's my own throne. that's why i'm really excited. a lot of people in the building i just came from our addicts. a lot of them are still addicts and i had to look around for nails. people would be -- for needles. people would be in the bathrooms there. >> we are moving from the
baldwin hotel on 6th street which was very small rooms, a very tough block. it wasn't working. john was living in a hotel where many of the rooms were under 70 feet. we have some hotels that have 200 rooms. 200 room hotels with limited public wrath rooms is not an ideal situation and tenants feel like it's not the best environment and they are right. that's the best the homeless probably have. the reality is it's expensive to house people correctly who have serious mental health problems. legislatures don't want one of these facilities in their district and they don't want to spend the money. >> what's it like to live here? >> it sucks. problems sleeping at night, in a small room. this one right here. this is my domain.
>> the baldwin is what you would describe as a typical sro. the rooms are super small, the bathrooms are down the hall, there are no kitchenettes. you compared to some of the other housing we have, some of the new housing we are bringing online, it seems inadequate. >> a nice big room with a closet and microwave. it's got a nice view. i'm satisfied. >> to windows and fresh air -- i don't see people everywhere. it's already a lot quieter. >> this is a different environment. a big step for our tenants coming here.
this is our kitchen, which i believe the tenants will love. they have a nice big fridge. john, it's kiersten. how are you liking your new home? >> i'm liking it. >> getting it set up. john is the type of tenant who likes to stay in his room. he has a sweet soul and he appreciates the simple fact that i ask him how are you. some people don't give people chances to change their self, transitioning from being on the street into a place, a lot of people give them hard times and it's not like they are purposely doing it, they just don't know any better yet.
everyone makes mistakes. i give people chances. >> this is my new apartment that i just got. it's got my own kitchen area. my own bathroom, my own shower, that new. i had to share that with 20 or 30 people sometimes. a lot of people might think it's small, but to me, it's home and i'm grateful for it. i'm from a small town and i travel around a lot and ended up in seattle fully addicted to heroin and that's all i cared about. that's how i originally became homeless, just chasing drugs. i got on methadone in seattle and it really helped. i got off heroin and i was clean. when i first came for a few months, i ended up on the streets. i lived on the streets in san
francisco for six years. san francisco is not a place to be homeless. it's cold at night. when i lived on the streets, i was using stop most people on the streets are using. >> i can tell you why people stay on drugs. because it takes you out of the situation you're in. i know what i'm doing next weekend, you know what you are doing on christmas, i know what i'm doing on christmas. but folks out here, they don't know what they are doing an hour from now. so why clean up? i can't deal with this no more. i can deal with this no more. at least for those hours while you are intoxicated, you don't have to deal with who you are. >> i was so grateful when i got the chance to get off the streets stop it was like a dream come true. i just want to continue to better my life.
this is a stepping stone. i want to get a job and continue to stay on a good path. larry: this is just part of a 30 minute streaming special we put together. you can stream 50 blocks, strays from the tenderloin rig right nn our abc 7 bay area streaming app. it's available on your amazon it's available on your amazon fire, roku, apple tv orleen. i live in vancouver, washington dogs have been such an important part of my life. i have flinn and a new puppy. as i was writing, i found that i just wasn't as sharp and i new i needed to do something so i started taking prevagen. i realized that i was much more clear and i was remembering the details that i was supposed to. prevagen keeps my brain working right. prevagen. healthier brain. better life.

we know it spencer is eating for dinner. spencer: it won't be a veggie burger, actually. larry: it's not surprising, when i saw the story, i thought it was $70 per person. it's actually $70 total, so seven dollars on average. but you go to safe way or whatever your favorite market is and you buy five things and it's a hundred bucks. mike: even on the lower end of the food scale, even those are expensive. we see how many bags we can get for the amount of money and it used to be like $50. karina: eggs, milk, meat -- it is just skyrocketing. larry: hopefully inflation slows down.
how is this for a long dog walk. a new jersey man completed a walk around the world with his dog by his side. he set out on his epic walk seven years ago and his dog accompanied him across six continents and 38 countries. they walked 18 to 21 miles every day. he's just the 10th person on record to walk around the world but savannah is the first dog to accomplish this feat. karina: so many dogs out there just want to go for a walk a day. larry: i don't know how many dogs ask for a walk around the world. karina: how many languages doesn't bark? spencer: what was the total mileage they walked? larry: we have years. six continents, ready eight countries, 18 to 20 miles each day. karina: 29,826.
larry: is he sponsored? karina: some kind of tennis shoe company, right? larry: no dog food company? if he's not sponsored now, he should be. spencer: he and savannah are both in great shape. larry: it's all those veggie dogs they are eating. karina: we are going to talk about this -- an antique vampire slaying kit drew and national adding war. this 19th-century box sold in the u.k. for almost $16,000. that's more than six times the asking price. it has everything you need to ward off vampires. including crucifixes, holy water, a wooden stake, pistols and a gothic bible. and all in one kit just in case you need it. spencer: won't garlick do it too? that's a vegetable. larry: he can't leave it alone.
