Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide access for low-income people, especially those living with HIV/AIDS, to affordable housing and other human services. We provide supportive housing, housing case management, individual housing plans and up to date information and listings for affordable apartments and special needs housing.

Description

We focus our work on developing affordable housing in San Diego, currently operating 66 units. We also offer a variety of other housing options and services. We lead the way in returning homeless people back to housing through our program: Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing. We provide information and referral services for many of the needs that people have and can be addressed by one of our 200 social service partners. Self-sustainability is our goal, and through all of our programs, we provide people with the planning, tools and follow-up needed for people to live independently, while also getting the public benefits to which they are entitled.
