Homeless San Diegans living on the streets of downtown San Diego will continue to have a place to store their belongings while they look for work or use public transportation to connect with social services. Watch Video.
The downtown facility, known as the Water Man Check-in Center, received much- needed funding to stay in operation with the unanimous vote today of the San Diego City Council. The action will provide temporary program funding through June 30, 2012, which will be administered by the San Diego Housing Commission.
The Check-in Center is operated by the Girls Think Tank.
The City Council allocated a total of $45,000 in funding from seven districts to keep the Check-in Center in operation while the Isaiah Project continues its fundraising efforts. The downtown center, located at 917 9th Avenue, provides free weekly storage to homeless San Diegans. The Check-in Center also serves to reduce the amount of homeless belongings on downtown sidewalks.
The facility serves 350 people per day at a program cost of about 79 cents per person.
If you would like to donate funds to the organization, you can make your check out to the "San Diego Housing Commission - Check-in Center," and mail it to:
