HOUSING FIRST – SAN DIEGO: 2018-2020
SDHC’s Homelessness Action Plan
HOUSING FIRST – SAN DIEGO: 2018-2020, the San Diego Housing Commission’s (SDHC) homelessness action plan, directs $79.7 million in federal, City of San Diego, and SDHC resources over three fiscal years into six programs that will create permanent housing opportunities for 3,000 individuals and families experiencing homelessness in the city.
This action plan is rooted in the national “Housing First” model of addressing homelessness – to provide individuals experiencing homelessness with housing as quickly as possible, with supportive services as needed.
These new initiatives build on the accomplishments of the first three years of HOUSING FIRST – SAN DIEGO, which was launched on November 12, 2014, and is on target to impact the lives of close to 3,000 San Diegans experiencing homelessness—Veterans, families and individuals in the City of San Diego—which far exceeds its initial goal of serving 1,500 individuals.
