Homelessness Working Group Joins United Way of San Diego County

The Homelessness Working Group, a collaboration of funder members of San Diego Grantmakers, is aligning with United Way of San Diego County. Regarding the decision to transition, Doug Sawyer, president & CEO of United Way of San Diego County stated: “What this partnership does is combine the resources of those actively fighting homelessness in San Diego so that we can be more effective and more efficient in resolving this massive issue in our community.” With this new alignment, the Homelessness Working Group and United Way will work together to promote the Housing First model and “reinforce relationships with government officials and private donors in order to continue to provide the funds, services, mental healthcare and job readiness assistance necessary to end the cycle of homelessness.” For more information, click here.
