Mayor Breed and Sups. Mandelman, Brown, and Fewer announced a plan to attempt to save residential treatment homes that are being shut down all over the city. These “board-and-care” facilities house people who are mentally ill, former homeless, and struggle with substance abuse. The plan includes increasing subsidies for the board-and-care owners, making it difficult to convert the buildings to a different use, and encourage the city to buy the facilities.
