Homeless in San Diego

Christy Riddle pushes her 9-month-old baby, Charlie, in his stroller from the Rescue Mission Emergency Shelter.

I am shedding some light on something we all see daily living in San Diego.

“Homeless Families Crowd San Diego Shelters”

“Families make up nearly one-third of the nation’s homeless population. The National Center on Family Homelessness estimates 1.6 million children will experience homelessness this year”.

“A record number of San Diego homeless families are waiting to get into a long-term shelter. Waiting lists average two to four months. During the wait, many families stay at emergency shelters, like the San Diego Rescue Mission's Emergency Shelter for Women and Children, which has been over-capacity just about every night for the past two years”.


This is America; I know we can do better.
