We Have Reached Our 100 Veteran Milestone!

We did it! We have successfully placed 100 Veterans into housing.  Thanks to a dedicated volunteer staff and some very motivated Veterans we can share this great news with you!

At HVSD we ask a lot from the Veterans we serve; they must be willing to put in the work to be successful in our program. It is so awesome to see the progress, potential and dedication of each veteran.  Each of them has worked towards their individual goals with one of our case managers at HVSD. We pride ourselves on the friendships we have established with our Veterans and the opportunity we have to share in triumphs and successes as these men and woman take the steps to get out of homelessness. 

We emphasis the importance of employment, education and offer encouragement through the several steps they must go through.  We are so PROUD of all that each of our veterans has accomplished. We will remain strong and willing to help them as they each move forward towards even bigger goals.

We successfully entered over 25 veterans into our program at Homeless Veterans Of San Diego at the North County Veterans Stand Down and are on track to put over 100 veterans into permanent housing in 2020. Currently we have over 87 veterans in permanent housing that have successfully gone through our program.

The Epidemic

Our mission is straightforward…to end homelessness upon our Veterans in San Diego. 

The mission is not impossible, yet it requires specific steps and navigation to get our veterans the services and assistance they deserve.

As reported by the San Diego Regional Task Force on our homeless, The 2019 Point-in-Time Count found that the number of unsheltered homeless individuals in San Diego was well over 8,100. These numbers are arguably low, as we have direct contact with many Veterans across San Diego county that are living in their cars, sleeping on couches or living on the streets and were not counted during the PIT count. 

There is simply not enough shelter beds available in San Diego. The beds that are available are often not appropriate for Veterans that suffer from PTSD, have pets, spouses or children. Many of our veterans are actively in recovery and low barrier shelters that are offered by the city leave many of our veterans feeling hopeless and choosing to sleep in their cars or on the streets rather than put themselves in a environment that triggers their anxiety and addiction issues.

Our Mission

What Do We Do At HVSD?

Homeless Veterans Of San Diego is a homeless outreach organization located in San Diego, CA. Did you know that 8,576 people sleep homeless in San Diego each night? It is the mission of HVSD to put an end to the epidemic of homelessness among our veterans. The goal of the organization is mentoring, and a “hand up” approach that our homeless veterans will finally realize the peace of having their own home. HVSD’s advocacy will help veterans with each step of turning their lives in a positive direction.
