Only 10 homeless individuals Citywide are eligible for a conservatorship- because of a State law requiring that the City first seek, through the courts, to help them through Laura’s Law, otherwise known as assisted outpatient treatment. Only 10 individuals who would otherwise be eligible for conservatorship Citywide are also eligible for outpatient treatment. A bill by Senator Scott Wiener will seek to remove the requirement.
