Homeless Veterans of San Diego exists to put an end to the epidemic of homelessness among our veterans. No veteran that has served our country should have to sleep next to a freeway, in downtown doorways, under bridges, in tents on busy city streets, or in brush in canyons and parks.
It is our goal through individual advocacy, mentoring, and a “hand up” approach that our homeless veterans will realize the comfort of having their own home. But even before that happens, our advocacy will help our veterans with each step of turning their lives in a positive direction.
Homeless Veterans of San Diego serves homeless veterans willing to make a commitment to help themselves and work one-on-one with one of our advocates. We provide individualized advocacy and care to provide them resources and steps to get them the care and hope they need.
We have seen great success in establishing trust, friendship and positive interaction with our homeless veterans by meeting with them regularly and helping them individually through the many steps of moving in a positive direction to end their own homelessness and regain pride, dignity and self-worth.
Together we can end this epidemic and take these veterans off the streets and into homes where they can be feel safe, peaceful and proud.
