We Need Your Help

Homelessness is San Diego’s number-one social service issue.

Our county’s homelessness epidemic is at a critical level. According to the 2018 San Diego Annual Point-In-Time Count (January 2018) conducted by the Regional Task Force on Homelessness:

  • San Diego’s homeless population is the fourth largest in the country.
  • More than 8,576 total homeless persons in the county.
  • Over 1,300 homeless veterans in the county.
  • Over 1,600 members of families and children.
  • San Diego does not have the facilities to support our homeless, with only 42 beds for every 100
  • homeless persons.
