The stations will also highlight the good work being done by organizations in San Diego who help build shelters, housing, and provide basic human services.
Additionally, participants will get a chance to meet local not for profit organizations that are helping the homeless in San Diego every day at the STEP UP! Pavilion throughout the event.

Through the generosity of commercial real estate professionals, builders, their trade partners, and our donors and supporters, HomeAid San Diego builds multi-unit housing for the homeless in partnership with charities such as Promises2Kids, Catholic Charities, Interfaith Community Services, Home Start, Inc.,Casa de Amparo, Serving Seniors, North County Lifeline and others who own and operate the shelters. These charities provide social services that enable residents to move beyond their temporary homeless situation to become self-sufficient.
Established in 2002, HomeAid San Diego is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to building multi-unit housing for San Diego’s temporarily homeless men, women and children. The organization is supported by an alliance of local and national building and commercial real estate industry organizations and companies.
Under the leadership of Builder Captains, HomeAid San Diego develops projects with the support of trade partners and volunteers. Once they are completed, professional service providers take up the baton by providing services that help residents regain strength and purpose in a safe environment.
Unlike any time in America’s history, today’s homeless are primarily women, children, and families. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of today’s homeless are not the people seen on the street – They are the “Invisible Homeless” who are without a place to live due to unforeseen life circumstances. They are parents who had to choose between paying the rent or paying for a daughter’s medicine; they are mothers who removed their children from abusive fathers; they are parents who lost their job because a manufacturer closed a plant; they are pregnant teens who were thrown out by angry parents; they are emancipated foster youth without a place to live or a means of support; they are senior citizens and veterans who no longer have a family to care for them; they are abused children removed from their homes for their safety; they are veterans returning from recent wars.
