Reducing Homelessness In Our Community
The Downtown San Diego Partnership is working to raise awareness and funds to reduce homelessness in our community through a variety of programs and partnerships. Since 2010, alongside our Clean & Safe program’s homeless outreach team, the Downtown Partnership has collaborated with Downtown stakeholders, local leaders, and regional service providers to help connect more than 2,000 people with housing and services.

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 1,700 people have been helped through the Family Reunification Program – 536 in 2017 alone. 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.
