SAN DIEGO — Father Joe’s Villages, San Diego’s largest homeless services provider, served nearly 13,000 neighbors in need during the 2023 calendar year.

The latest “Compassion in Action: Our Neighbors by the Numbers” report showed that the organization offered 366,805 nights of shelter beds to people in need in San Diego and helped almost 900 people experiencing homelessness exit to permanent or temporary housing.

Additionally, its medical staff provided care to 3,469 unique neighbors in 2023. This included 1,791 dental appointments, 1,594 psychiatric appointments, and 2,180 encounters with the Street Health outreach team.

Of the nearly 13,000 served, 1,051 were under 17; 821 between the ages of 18 to 24; 7,033 between the ages of 25 to 54; and 4,047 over the age of 55.

The homelessness crisis in San Diego is growing and evolving as economic situations shift, resulting in insufficient affordable housing and an increase in living costs.

The agency is committed to helping all people in San Diego exit or avoid homelessness through wraparound services, including health care, affordable housing, and employment support.
