San Diego’s First-Ever Transportable Health Program for People Living on the Streets

| June 5, 2019 | 0 Comments

Father Joe’s Villages recently announced its new Street Health Program, a part of the Village Health Center at Father Joe’s Villages. This pilot program provides healthcare services directly to people on the streets of San Diego, reaching individuals experiencing homelessness who have not yet sought out help themselves.

Thirty percent of individuals experiencing homelessness have complex health needs but do not seek help. This first-ever San Diego program will reach the most vulnerable individuals experiencing homelessness.

As San Diego’s largest homeless services provider, Father Joe’s Villages sees that each person can rediscover hope and transform their life. To address the complex needs of people who are homeless, the organization provides housing for more than 2,000 each night, along with healthcare, addiction treatment, education, job training and therapeutic childcare. This mission is made possible only through the efforts of compassionate staff, dedicated volunteers, and generous public and private donors. For more information, visit:
