City of San Diego’s Homeless Shelters and Services Programs

The City of San Diego’s (City) Homeless Shelters and Services Programs provide temporary shelter and supportive services to some of the City’s most vulnerable residents.

The San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) administers these programs through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the City that first took effect on July 1, 2010.

In addition, on November 14, 2017, the San Diego City Council authorized a separate MOU for SDHC to oversee, administer, and manage the City’s Temporary Bridge Shelters. The first amendment to this MOU was authorized by the City Council on March 20, 2018, to also address the duties of the City and SDHC concerning the City’s Storage Connect Center, previously known as a Transitional Storage Center, at 116 South 20th Street.
