San Diego Initiatives to End Homelessness
The following is a list of San Diego Initiatives targeting the specific needs of San Diego’s homeless population. The organizations listed below were identified by (Un)Sheltered + Conversation participants.
Housing First San Diego
The San Diego Housing commission’s Housing First San Diego initiative is a three year action plan that promises to impact the lives of over 1,500 homeless San Diegans.
On Saturday, Dec 10, 2016 300 San Diegans came together to launch the #RightToARoof campaign for affordable, quality homes for all of our families. Together, we marked International Human Rights Day for the second annual community-led “Human Rights Day of Action” event. We filled a vacant lot in Southeast San Diego and held space as local residents who have experienced poor quality, unaffordable housing and homelessness shared their stories. The #RightToARoof campaign calls for urgent action by San Diego representatives to address the longstanding housing crisis affecting our families.
Project 25, a three-year pilot program funded by the local chapter of the United Way, gives people housing, access to preventative and regular health care while also saving taxpayer money.
