It's a paradox! Homelessness in San Francisco

This is a couple years old but it is a worthy addition to my "it's a paradox" collection.  A news article in the San Francisco Weekly reports:
Despite its spending more money per capita on homelessness than any comparable city, its homeless problem is worse than any comparable city's. 
"Despite"?  Only a liberal would think that the generous handouts that the city provides would be a reason for homeless to move elsewhere.  Homeless settle in San Francisco because of, not despite, the city's generosity.

Hat tip: Ed Driscoll.

 PREVIOUSLY on the paradoxes that vex liberal minds:
Paradox: gun sales up despite politicians' threats to ban gun sales
Paradox: student test scores improve despite school funding decrease
News report: Gun crime down "despite" increase in gun sales
It's a paradox: Congress unpopular "despite record"
"Ironically," conservatives and their children are happier
It's a paradox!: Crime down when criminals are in jail.
Paradox: crime is down (again)
Paradox: few fraudulent voters if voters are required to have IDs
