Formed in 2013, our newest regional funders network in San Diego is comprised of private foundations and United Ways committed to preventing and ending homelessness. Specifically, the Homelessness Working Group transitioned from San Diego Grantmakers to become part of the growing group of public and private partners supporting the United Way of San Diego County's activities to end homelessness in the region. The partnerships will allow United Way to capitalize on the work already done by the Homelessness Working Group since its formation in 2003, while also increasing United Way's efforts to affect system-level change.
Purpose: To promote an effective and efficient system of housing and services to help end homelessness in San Diego County.
Goal: To build a San Diego County network of funders who are committed to solving homelessness through leadership, education, and advocacy; strategic collaboration, alignment and focus of resources; and effective promotion and replication of evidence based practices in our community.
Objective: Expand philanthropic engagement in the systems change work needed to end homelessness in San Diego County.
