30-Day Emergency Shelter

This facility is a permanent, 162-bed shelter in National City, serving men, women and families experiencing homelessness from all over the county.

As we build relationships with our vulnerable neighbors, we invite them to the Lighthouse, a 30-day Emergency Shelter. Open 365 days a year, this shelter offers guests personal, trauma-informed care to help them take their next critical steps toward ending their homelessness.

This referral-only shelter provides a safe place to sleep, as well as hot meals, clothing, necessities and access to showers, laundry, and wrap-around services. Guests will receive weekly case management sessions to identify options for rehabilitation and stable housing. Oftentimes, this includes entry into our long-term recovery program for men, women and children, Mission Academy. With the help of partner agencies and volunteers, guests also have access to addiction recovery classes, physical and mental health services, peer support and social activities.
