Dear Campaign Supporters and Partners:
This month, our newsletter is packed with news about San Diego’s progress toward ending homelessness. We begin with a great op-ed column from Sunday’s U-T San Diego that talks about the effectiveness of the Housing First model, crediting the hard work of the Campaign to End Homelessness in Downtown San Diego.
In related news, we have the latest on the revamped operations plan for the City’s winter shelter and a push for new technology to streamline service provision.
Also on the local front, it was gratifying to see the police unit that is directly responsible for helping homeless individuals get off the streets and into services receive a richly deserved award from the Downtown San Diego Partnership.
On the state and national scene, Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins announced millions of dollars in federal grants to fight veteran homelessness in California, while CSH and the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation take their partnership to a higher level with a major grant to build supportive housing in Los Angeles County.
Meanwhile, we bring you up to speed on newly signed laws that bolster homeless services.
As always, we welcome your feedback and appreciate your support!
