Veterans Assistance of San Diego

More than 1,400 veterans are homeless in San Diego County every day and last year, nearly 3,700 veterans in San Diego experienced at least one night of homelessness.

This population is wildly diverse, including both men and women, many of whom have children, who have served in a wide range of conflicts spanning from the Vietnam era to post 9/11 service.

Last year, Interfaith Community Services’ Veterans Assistance of San Diego division was there to help by assisting 1,067 veterans with employment, nutrition, housing, counseling, recovery from hospital stays and wrap-around family support.

Our approach to serving veterans is recognized as a “national model for faith community involvement in addressing community needs” by The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans.
