TRANSITIONAL HOUSING PROGRAM FOR HOMELESS SENIORS

2 out of 5 San Diego seniors have to choose between rent and food, every day.

Our Transitional Housing Program for Homeless Seniors, launched in 2002, connects homeless seniors with case managers who provide them with access to housing, meals, health services and counseling during a 90-day transitional period. Seniors work with their case manager to create individualized plans with goals for achieving stable housing and successful independent living.

Seniors in the program are assisted in accessing benefits they may be eligible for (Social Security, Medicare, etc.), establishing a savings plan, undergoing a health assessment and addressing medical needs. Additionally, participants are provided with temporary housing for the duration of their program participation, helping ensure their success.

This “housing first” approach boasts a 92% success rate and has helped more than 1,000 seniors find stability since its inception.
