In this Politifest 2023: California's Biggest Challenges, Voice of San Diego's senior investigative reporter Lisa Halverstadt talks with Margot Kushel, MD, director of UCSF’s Benioff Homelessness and Housing Initiative, about the causes of homelessness. Dr. Kushel discusses the landmark study, the California Statewide Study of People Experiencing Homelessness, that BHHI released in June. "It turns out people who experience homelessness stay where they are. This is a homegrown problem. We can talk for the reasons for that problem, but it's, it's certainly not people rushing into our state to, to enjoy being homeless here" said Dr. Kushel.
