Community Support

The Healthcare for the Homeless program is more than just health care. We believe in treating all the needs of an individual, including underlying issues that cause or continue homelessness. This holistic approach fosters an atmosphere of respect and provides hope to hundreds of individuals every year. Below are some of the ways our team makes a difference in the lives of San Diegans affected by homelessness.
