The Every Heart Campaign

Transforming Hurting Hearts & Lives

At the San Diego Rescue Mission, our approach to homelessness is holistic, trauma-informed and person-centered, because we believe that homelessness is an issue of the heart.

With your support, the lives of men, women and families experiencing homelessness can be transformed. They can once again have dignity and be empowered to take ownership of their healing.

By offering immediate assistance through Navigation Centers and longer-term rehabilitation through Mission Academy, we will get more people off the streets permanently.

As homelessness continues to grow in San Diego County, now is the time to make a change.
