PACIFICA (KCBS) – Known for its beaches and sweeping ocean views, Pacifica rarely attracts attention for crime or other quality of life problems. But statistics compiled over the past few years expose a growing problem: homelessness.
In 2007, Pacifica had record of just 7 homeless men and women. According to a one-day homeless count conducted in January 2013, there are now 150 recognized homeless individuals in Pacifica.
“Mostly in cars and RVs,” said Pacifica Resource Center executive director Anita Rees, who co-authored a recently released report on the problem of homelessness in Pacifica, based in part of the January 2013 count.
