Kelly Knight at the Downtown San Diego Partnership (DSDP) was recently featured in San Diego City Beat. The article provides excellent insight into the targeted outreach methods that Knight utilizes in her oversight of the Work Your Way Home Program, which reconnects homeless persons with family and friends willing to provide support and shelter. Campaign member Michael McConnell, Vice President of the Regional Task Force Board of Directors, is also highlighted in the article. In their interviews, both Knight and McConnell espouse the importance of interagency cooperation, envisioning a central database of beds and services to streamline efforts.
The Work Your Way Home program has reunited nearly 125 people with family, friends, and support services since 2012.
