$86 = ONE WEEK OF HOUSING FOR A VETERAN
San Diego has the 2nd largest number of homeless Veterans in the nation. In 2015, Father Joe’s Villages helped more than 2900 Veterans and their families get the housing, meal, job training and other services they needed. For only $86, you can help house a Veteran who is homeless for one week.
$27 = ONE DAY OF THERAPEUTIC CHILDCARE
Children who are homeless are four times as likely to have developmental delays and twice as likely to repeat a grade in school. Father Joe’s Villages provides Therapeutic Childcare in a state-of-the-art center. 100% of kids in the program improved their reading. For just $27, you can provide one day of this life-changing program.
$55 = ONE NIGHT OF HOUSING FOR A FAMILY
Right now there are more than 550 homeless families in San Diego. Father Joe’s Villages’ programs provide welcoming and empowering support that is a shelter from the storm of homelessness. Last year, we helped more than 800 people, including parents and their children, move from the streets into a home of their own. Just $55 houses a homeless family for one night.
$12 = SUPPORTS VITAL MEDICAL SERVICES
Homelessness dramatically increases a person’s risk of illness, injury and death. Father Joe’s Villages’ Family Health Center provides critical medical, psychiatric and dental care to our neighbors in need. The program saved the city over $1.8 million due to decreased use of emergency rooms and ambulances. For just $12, you can help ensure a person who is homeless gets needed medical care.
$10 A MONTH = SUPPORTS CRITICAL EMPLOYMENT TRAINING
66% of homeless adults are unemployed. With rents in San Diego topping $1600 for a one-bedroom apartment, people who are homeless need good jobs to pay for housing. Father Joe’s Villages provides job training tailored to the unique needs of homeless people. 75% of Culinary Arts Program graduates got jobs in local restaurants paying more than minimum wage. A monthly donation of $10 can help a homeless person get the job skills they need.
