San Diego is the 8th largest city in the United States, but 4th largest for homelessness. It’s clear that homelessness is our #1 issue. Each night, there are 10,000 men, women, and children without a place to call home in our city. At the San Diego Rescue Mission, our goal is to get people off the streets permanently. We can’t do this without the support of the community. Volunteers, corporations, churches, and private donors make it possible to transform lives of those who are experiencing homeless.
Our programs are designed not only to meet the immediate, tangible necessities of those who come to us in need, but also to address the underlying issues of the heart. This is how lives are transformed, impacting San Diego one life at a time.
