STEP UP 5K walk volunteers and participants pose near an art installation explaining the challenges facing the homeless in San Diego on October 27, 2019 at Mission Bay Park.

HomeAid San Diego’s inaugural event was a great success due to the generous support of our sponsors and registered walkers.  Our walk brought together over 300 people, 12 homeless service providers and over 7 commercial real estate companies to walk and figure out new ways to bring more permanent housing solutions to San Diego.  

In partnership with commercial real estate and NAIOP, exceeded its fundraising goal of $50,000 and has several projects underway and on the horizon to reduce the number of unsheltered homeless in San Diego county.
