Mission Statement

Our Mission

To coordinate the efforts of participating congregations, social service agencies, and governmental programs in order to provide shelter and other resources to homeless individuals and families and enable those we serve to move toward self-sufficiency while respecting their dignity as children of God.

Description

The Interfaith Shelter Network is a collaborative effort by local congregations, human services agencies and government entities to provide shelter, services, and resources to homeless San Diegans throughout the region.

The Network consists of two programs:
The Rotational Shelter and El Nido Transitional Living

They represent the work of more than 100 San Diego County congregations and 3,500+ volunteers who link to offer hands up to people seeking an end to their homelessness. Our volunteers and congregations collectively have sheltered more than 8,000 homeless people for more than 200,000 bed nights since 1986. More than half of our shelter guests leave our shelters for more permanent housing because of the professional guidance they receive from our case management agencies and the personal attention they receive from Network volunteers. In our El Nido program, virtually all our families leave for their own permanent affordable housing, and the majority of mothers leave with increased income and additional career related skills.
