KALW: “Displaced from the Mission: Pet sitting without a permanent place to live”

The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco’s Mission District is currently about  $3,500 per month. That means a renter needs to make almost $130,000 per year if she wants to spend just a third of her paycheck on rent. Singer-songwriter Candace Roberts doesn’t fall into that income bracket.

When the rent went up on her room in the Mission a few years ago, she decided she could no longer afford to stay there – or anywhere in the city. So she packed up her things and took a chance on a life without a permanent place to live.
