For more than 50 years it has been more than our purpose – it has been our privilege — to help San Diego’s homeless and poor populations create better lives for themselves and, in turn, build a better community for us all
Our comprehensive programs meet basic needs, then go further. They help our clients address the challenges behind their homelessness for positive, lasting change.
They provide an opportunity for those in need to take control of their lives, find a new level of stability, and return to their communities as fulfilled, contributing members of society.
In my new blog, I’ll be sharing stories from within the Nueva Vida Haven Emergency Overnight Shelter for Women & Children, as well as insight and progress updates from our 12-month rehabilitation program.
Our residential rehabilitation program is the largest in the county and goes beyond just providing basic meal and overnight shelter -and even beyond basic job training.
We incorporate a holistic approach to recovery, addressing the needs of the mind, body, and soul. By doing so we help our residents confront and overcome the problems that led to homelessness in the first place. This helps put broken families back together.
Join me here on this blog each month, as I share important updates and powerful stories from within the San Diego Rescue Mission, and show you first hand just how the support of people like you is helping to change lives.
