To accomplish our mission of building and renovating shelters for temporarily homeless men, women, and children, HomeAid San Diego identifies effective nonprofit operators of homeless shelters in San Diego and works with them to renovate their existing facilities or to build new structures in a manner that will either add more or preserve existing shelter beds. To be eligible for a HomeAid San Diego project, a nonprofit Service Provider must provide social services and support that enable families and individual to move beyond their temporary situation, transform their lives, restore their self worth, and regain self-sufficiency.
To qualify for assistance as a HomeAid San Diego project, a nonprofit Service Provider must have a program based within HomeAid San Diego’s region and at a minimum must also have:
- A mission to assist the temporarily homeless –those who can and want to be rehabilitated, but need assistance for 60 days to 24 months to do so
- Strong community and political support
- A good track record of enabling clients to attain a stable lifestyle and obtain long-term independent housing
- Operational funding in place to support client programs
- Capital funds available or the capability to raise the necessary funding to ensure completion of the project.
Our Service Provider partners reflect the diversity of our County, its creativity and it’s caring. Each of our Service Providers is carefully evaluated to determine that each project will be well maintained and used for programs that has demonstrated success in supporting its clients in restoring their lives.
