Homeless rate on the rise in San Francisco, USA

According to the news in the US press, rising housing costs in San Francisco, one of the cities with the highest quality of life in the country, forces residents living in low-income areas to leave their homes.

While the rate of homeless people is increasing due to the high cost of living, some of the people who have been displaced from their homes because they cannot afford the costs also live on the streets. Drug addiction is among the most important reasons for the increase in the number of homeless people in San Francisco.
