SHIPWRECK – 6TH STRAIGHT MONTH OF RECORD-HIGH HOMELESSNESS; CITY APPEARS MORE FOCUSED ON REMOVING YOUTH SPORTS THAN REMOVING CRIMINAL ELEMENT
The Lucky Duck Foundation issues a new Shipwreck and a new Shamrock.
“Shamrock” awarded to County and City of San Diego for supporting Urban Street Angels’ youth shelter bed expansion
The County of San Diego and City of San Diego earned a shamrock for their support of Urban Street Angels to add 20 new immediately-available beds for youth experiencing homelessness.
“2023 must be the year San Diego’s elected officials start the process of reducing homelessness. Clearly, they cannot proceed in the current failed direction. We believe this plan is a practical strategy to change the momentum, help those in need, and protect public safety and health.” – Drew Moser, Executive Director, Lucky Duck Foundation
Over the course of 2022, the Lucky Duck Foundation added 150 critically needed shelter beds, funded 15+ employment and job training programs, removed 85+ tons of trash via “cash for trash,” distributed more than 3,000 winter coats that transform into sleeping bags, eclipsed 1.5 million meals distributed, and much more. And thanks to our donors and volunteers, the efforts by the Lucky Duck Foundation were highlighted on both GMA and NBC Nightly News. We hope you will take a few minutes to watch our 2022 impact report.
