Homeless

Does anyone know how much is spent per homeless person in SF?
Also, can you site the source?

Cheers,

http://www.wewantchange.com/ says $200 million is the budget for 12,500
homeless people (this is the number reported by the city to the feds, though
the Mayor says 7,500, and the "homeless advocates" claim there are almost
95,000 homeless).

That works out to about $16,000 per person if you assume the city isn't
lying to the feds, $27,000 if you trust the mayor, or if you think 1 in 7
San Franciscans is homeless, $2,100 per person.

Thanks Rob. This confirms what someone else told me recently. I thought I had read about a higher number (like $80K) reported by the Chronicle.
