7:30 am
mother brown's maybe two or three months. i cannot see us having no beds. i'm grateful to mother brown's. a thousand times. i'm 41 years old i don't have any disabilities at all nothing. i graduated with an aa degree i had no problems. there's people that way, way more dependant. i'm able to stand before you and say people need those beds. it hurts. it hurts everyday i walk up to mother brown's and say wow. that's how they trait us. and everybody else people
7:31 am
bringing stuff out of their cars and house to spending their extra money to put food in their stomachs. so, please we need those beds >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors arrest i'm david. and i have 8 plus years of the resident roughly 15 years over envy 24 years of living in the bayview. i've seen the bayview emerge into an even increasing vibrate area. considering the beds are not at capability there truly is no nor reason for homeless beds. san francisco and it's resident is a model city for reaching out
7:32 am
and helping those in need. that's what makes the city and a community attractive to all. having said that i ask the committee to remove the address from the neighborhood from the resolution before it. along with that, i ask the committee to table the plan so that every consideration is made for most effectively meeting the needs of everyone that make ups our neighborhoods throughout san francisco residents and homeless and businesses alike. our homeless don't noetd need to be warehoused or should they be rounded up and hirtd. so remove any reference to this neighborhood on the resolution.
7:33 am
our homeless needs homeless housing not to be warehoused. again, please have this tabled so the appropriate discussion occurs in those communities and then decide where and how funds are more effective for our homeless residents. >> thank you. next speaker, please good afternoon, supervisors. 82 for hearing me on bayview at risk. i'm dorothy i didn't moore. will i'm not speaking again mother brown's or the homeless but i'm asking you all to table or strip the address of 2115 be jennings from the proposal. second i ask you table this for additional community meeting for
7:34 am
more residents to be involved in such a important matter. supervisors i have 675 years in the bayview district i grew up on donna and jennings with my mother and father and siblings. my kin lived in the bayview district. i've not seen any increase in the homeless that will justify the homeless on jennings. bayview has the highest decent in children in san francisco with few save playground which was something i had growing up. children are seen drinking at the park and high-level of pds d
7:35 am
type of stress and poor role models for at risk children. again, i haven't seen an increase in the homeless that would justify the homeless shelter at the 2151 jennings >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> i'm matt i'm a resident of bayview. no reasonable person is against homeless shelters. i wish there kwob a homeless shelter in every neighborhood. the problem is the cities attitude toward the neighborhood. a couple of plaques is casey jones park. it's continually trashed and no one takes care of it the playground is falling apart there is no trash cans. it's closed more than half the
7:36 am
time often because there's no staff. mccleaning park which is 5 minutes away is crumbling. there's no more gorgeous in the neighborhood and i don't think this this is a coming in defines >> i'm a client of mother brown and what it is unique you don't get attitude for being down. anywhere else you get a attitude. they understand recession and record high mriment unemployment and mass evictions.
7:37 am
and i don't get it the homeless people are there spell in need of beds. few lucky ones get a chair to sit in. if the staff is there why not give them beds next to the facility that's already there. beyond the opposition to this. if we build this they will come. i urge you to approve this, please >> thank you very much. okay i'd like it a ask is there anyone from the public that would like to speak? seeing none, public comment is closed. supervisor avalos >> thank you chair farrell. it's very rare that i get moved by hearing from public comment i hear a lot of public comment and
7:38 am
sometimes, i feel my haerment heartily is harden but i'm moved by the compassion from the people of bayview community people who care about the homeless and people are living homeless. there are many people in this room who have risen to a great care of services. i don't believe we have a lot of shelters in san francisco that have that level of consent of the neighborhood and it's clear many people who have become homeless in san francisco are homeless because of the huge economic disparities that are in the city. people becoming homeless from foreclosures and defaults.
7:39 am
my community has been hit hard with foreclosures. i feel its important we provide a level of service. we are not expanding services for people who are not homeless we're providing services for people who are already in the shelters. and then you know when it comes to people who are very concerned about the shelter it really and compared to the people who have an incredible sense of community there's a lot of work to bridge relationships in the neighborhood where we can approach each other from a distance but understand how we can contribute to the bridge the
7:40 am
divide and sometimes, we have a educate people who are scared, you know, about the changes that are happening in the community. that's often what we have to bear with but i'd like to think that's something we can do and people who are attended e opposed can work hard to meet the people who are doing a lot of great work in the neighborhood. so i'll be supportive of this resolution here today. i will not be - i'm not in favor of changing the languages or stabilizing it for more information. my experience with the homeless camp so over the years. i'm concerned the count is being inaccurate and i find the
7:41 am
homeless numbers is very sound and its something i give a lot of creed dance too. i'm surprised that the numbers are highway. i hear all the time about the homeless people in the streets. people have access to food, bombards and a place to sleep that can alleviate problems and a decrease in the impacts of homelessness there by having the facilities in place. i want to thank everyone for coming hero and touching envy heart. i want to entries, you know, i understand the concerns that have come up from the community and i hope community members can open that their hearts and see the great work and to build
7:42 am
relationships to make sure this shelter can turn their lives around >> supervisor mar. >> i just want to echo that i think much work needs to be done to bring defy points of view together within the neighborhood. i know that supervisor cowen would have been hero if she could have but it's important she play a role to try to bring you together. thank you folks for gufts a overview of the tremendous need. i want to say to the people who are concerned about the homeless shelter i agree there should have been more outreach and engagement. i sensed some of i are convinced that a homeless shelter canned
7:43 am
work by you understand some of you are compassionate. to those who are trying to pull up the community i want to say thank you for educating me with the mother browns information and the other valuable resources in the neighborhood. i hope the resident that are against the shelter you'll see them as valuable people who have been working to try to create an empowered community. to the woman who said this was
7:44 am
under serviced i couldn't disagree more. some housing and objects and a home and a shelter is about helping people and treating them with empathy and compassion. one other person said who was opted said she wants the bayview to be a place for everyone but i don't think she's including the homeless that were to other who gave comments i think what's missing and i'm in agreement with supervisor avalos we need to have a heart and compassion and the existing people who are surviving nodes the beds. the numbers is not the issue what do we do right now to give
7:45 am
that hand out. the man who go up and said give us a hand and a chance that's what we're doing. i want to thank supervisor cowen it's a difficult issue. i know the resident who are against have legitimate issues and the community that supports the warehouse will be responsively of supportive but optimum joining envy colleagues in supporting this because we need this now. i think the money is critical and i want to do what i can to put the shelters where we can in the bayview >> thank you supervisor mary. i won't repeat what's been said but i want to say that i think
7:46 am
and i appreciate where supervisor cowen's coming from you do feel there's a process that's taking place but i know there are some incredible servants in the city of san francisco i know the outreach will happen. i want to thank the members of mother brown's and everyone else that came out to speak on this stem. i agree with supervisor avalos that's rare you get touched here and the personal stories are pretty incredible. as you look not only in terms of the bayview and the homeless count where you're putting the services in the location but as you think about, you know, as we look at the homeless situation in san francisco how can we make
7:47 am
the situation better. i've looked at the 10 year homeless plan and the number one thing we need is housing. so i'll be supporting this item today and look forward to working with the community in the future (clapping) we have a motion >> motion to approve the recommendation. >> we can do so without opposition mr. clerk any other agenda. >> that completes our business for this afternoon. >> all right. we are
