HomeAid San Diego teamed up with C2 Imaging to serve lunch to homeless veterans and veterans residing at Merle’s Place, an Interfaith Community Services transitional housing property in Escondido, California.
Veterans generously shared their personal stories and how Interfaith is helping them to access support services and regain self-sufficiency.
Thanks to HomeAid San Diego Board Member, Eric Schmitz of C2 Imaging for providing the spread of turkey subs, chips, side salad, cookies, tea and lemonade. A special thank you goes out to our fearless veterans for your service to this country.
Merle’s Place is included under Interfaith Community Services’s transitional housing program and holds a special place as HomeAid San Diego’s first commercial build project in 2004. Merle’s Place provides transitional housing for 48 individuals experiencing homelessness in North County San Diego.
Interfaith’s transitional housing programs provide between one and two years of housing for homeless individuals and families. Along with housing, residents engage in comprehensive counseling and case-managed services. The shared goals of our transitional housing programs are to empower community members to regain stability and secure their own permanent housing upon program completion. Interfaith also offers a comprehensive Family Housing Program, in addition to specialized transitional housing for veterans, individuals overcoming addiction and individuals living with mental illness.
