Giving Hope to Youth

Youth homelessness is a crisis in San Diego. On any given night more than 1,000 young people are unsheltered.

The Lucky Duck Foundation believes no one should live on the streets. That’s why we support a variety of shelter and housing opportunities for homeless youth to permanently end their homelessness.

While the mission of the Lucky Duck Foundation is to alleviate the suffering of homelessness, ultimately every dollar we raise and invest is designed to give hope. Immediately. And permanently. Hope for a brighter, safer, and more fulfilling future.

We’re about helping people find a bright, immediate, safe and healthy pathway off the streets.

Reducing youth homelessness is one of our core priorities
for 2023. Please join us.

Approximately 50% of the chronically homeless population suffered from homelessness as a youth. We must catch homeless youth “while the cement is still wet.” Help us change the trajectory of young lives and end homelessness for youth once and for all by donating today.

Housing

The Lucky Duck Foundation believes no one should live on the streets. That’s why we support a variety of shelter and housing opportunities for homeless youth to permanently end their homelessness.

Education

The Lucky Duck Foundation provides access to technology, behavioral and mental health services in schools, access to training and educational opportunities, and more, to help youth pursue their education. 

Employment

More homeless individuals cite employment as a key factor in ending their homelessness than they do affordable housing. Access to employment for youth is critical and why the Lucky Duck Foundation supports a variety of employment opportunities. 

Hope

While the mission of the Lucky Duck Foundation is to alleviate the suffering of homelessness, ultimately every dollar we raise and invest is designed to give hope. Immediately. And permanently. Hope for a brighter, safer, and more fulfilling future.
