We recently reported that San Diego’s much-celebrated plan to end chronic homelessness has barely moved a year after it was passed unanimously by the City Council. Many of the subcommittees will meet for the first time this week and next.

In contrast, here’s a story from the Sacramento Bee about that city’s similar plan. This bit was particularly striking:

A year into Sacramento’s plan, nearly 200 of the county’s estimated 1,600 chronically homeless have been placed in housing.

And this story in the L.A. Times last week discussed that county’s Board of Supervisors’ plan to implement a similar plan:

… a program that will identify the 50 most vulnerable homeless people on downtown’s skid row and move them within 100 days into apartments with readily accessible support services.
