There is no debate that there is a growing problem of people on the verge of homelessness in the South Bay.
According to KTVU, a new study has found “The population of homeless people jumped about 31 percent in Santa Clara County and 42 percent in San Jose over the last two years” and the “count reveals 9,706 homeless people in the county, of which 6,172 are in San Jose”.
This is after the county has committed $234 million toward over 1,400 affordable apartments for homeless people. It seems like the people of the South Bay are trying to find a solution to this growing problem but it is not happening fast enough.
