REDUCING HOMELESSNESS IS OUR TOP PRIORITY
Downtown San Diego Partnership’s Clean & Safe program has created a comprehensive and compassionate program to reduce the number of homeless individuals on the streets of Downtown. Since 2010, our team has collaborated with multiple Downtown stakeholders and service providers to help connect more than 2,000 people with housing and supportive services.
Monthly Homeless Count
MAKE CHANGE COUNT
“Make Change Count” is a donation-based program that serves as a fundraising umbrella for Downtown’s homeless initiatives. The red donation station meters that you see throughout Downtown accept coin, credit, and debit card donations. The meters are designed to provide the public with an opportunity to donate to programs that effectively address and reduce homelessness. This program is generously sponsored by Cox Communications and IPS Group Inc. which repurposes and donates meters for this effort.
Family Reunification Program
FROM JUNE 26, 2017, TO MAY 1, 2018, OUR OUTREACH TEAM HAS REUNITED 696 HOMELESS INDIVIDUALS WITH THEIR SUPPORT SYSTEMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
One of our most successful efforts to reduce homelessness is the Family Reunification Program, which is designed to reconnect homeless individuals with their families and loved ones across the country. The program enables individuals to rebuild the much-needed support systems crucial to ending the cycle of homelessness. Since 2012, more than 1,800 people have been helped through the Family Reunification Program. Through support from the San Diego Housing Commission, Sharp HealthCare, the County of San Diego, and many other generous sponsors, we will continue to serve some of the most vulnerable members of our community.
