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.
Operation Shelter to Home in the San Diego Convention Center & Golden Hall
The Regional Task Force on the Homeless in partnership with the region’s cities, the County of San Diego, San Diego Housing Commission and homeless service providers have developed a new, system-wide, coordinated plan to further help sheltered and unsheltered individuals remain healthy during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Dubbed “Operation Shelter to Home,” the temporary repurposing of Golden Hall and the San Diego Convention Center in the City of San Diego as shelters will support a broader regional approach to address homelessness during this state of emergency.
