    Do these people not have jobs or savings accounts?

      What is the purpose of your question? Are you filling out a form, or are you purposefully attempting to come across as an uncompassionate person?

    • Stu says:

      even if they do they have nowhere to live now and finding new homes and living in this city while you are at it is not cheap you dick

      • blah says:

        The fact of the matter is, many tenants in SF wouldn’t be able to qualify for a lease on their own current rental if it were put back on the market at today’s market price. Rent control is keeping many people in their homes even though market rents can increase out of reach, but if they ever get thrown out it’s a tough world out there for them.

    what did the last benefit raise?

    I was at that fire and I wonder how the old Latina lady who was crying about her dog and the other Hispanic people that were affected by the fire are doing.

    Not that this matters too much, but just wanted to point out that the artwork features ladies of 506 Capp St. The event mentioned in the post are for the ladies of 508 Capp St. Different set of ladies, but nonetheless, both need help.

    The ladies of 506 Capp st. will additionally have a fundraiser at the Makeout Room on Sunday, June 5th from 8pm-2am with Bands/DJs.

    Come support your local neighbors with these two events! Thank you MM for mentioning these kinds of events.

    I wouldn’t phrase it so harshly but I do wonder what exactly the proceeds from this event will pay for? Replacing damaged personal effects? Relocation costs? People like to know where their money is going.

    • Funk says:

      I can only speak on 506 Capp’s behalf, but most of the money will go to relocation costs. The landlord fled the country, which left us with no security deposit back, or half month’s rent for May.

      And really this is kind of just moral support too. We cannot tell you what it means to us when random strangers donate or when friends step up to help. Our situation was really shitty, it wasn’t our fault, and it’s frustrating that our landlord is not here to help.

    That’s a shitty, shitty photo, but I’m pretty sure it’s my shitty photo.

  7. Selene says:

    Not that I lack compassion for the loss, but this is why people need insurance or at least a well-funded emergency savings account. Years ago I came home to find my apartment with a foot of sewer water in it; had I not had insurance I would have lost everything and had to move home to live with my parents. Since then I have always carried insurance.

  8. Stevie Laney says:

    So, landlord fled the country, has been unreachable and on top of every other task you have to do when your house burns down. Now you have to go to court to get what’s rightfully yours.
    Please come to these benefits.
