Nun bids farewell to homeless organization

Sister Bernie Galvin, who often clashed with San Francisco mayors on homeless policy, is leaving Religious Witness with Homeless People, the organization she created in 1993.

Newsom said Monday that Galvin “did a wonderful job holding us accountable.”Bay Area NewsLocal
