Helping Homeless San Diegans
The San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) is a driving force behind the Housing First model in the City of San Diego, providing federal housing resources to achieve the goals of the Campaign to End Homelessness in Downtown San Diego (Campaign). Watch Video.
Chaired by the Downtown San Diego Partnership and coordinated by LeSar Development Consultants, the Campaign began in September 2010.
In the early morning hours, 240 volunteers counted 1,040 homeless people living on the streets of downtown San Diego. The goal was to identify the most vulnerable individuals, then provide them with homes, medical care and social services. Community partnerships would be essential to this effort.
SDHC allocated 50 federal Sponsor-Based Housing Vouchers and 75 federal vouchers from the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program to provide housing for individuals in this group, while the County of San Diego funded mental health care services.
On October 17, 2011, in recognition of the Campaign to End Homelessness in Downtown San Diego and the progress that had been made, an additional 75 federal Sponsor–Based Housing vouchers were awarded by SDHC.
