You can give an unhoused veteran a home

Leave No Veteran Homeless is a countywide, multi-agency effort to provide all veterans experiencing homelessness the opportunity to find permanent supportive housing.

As of Oct. 1, 201 veterans have been housed since the Leave No Veteran Homeless Initiative launched in July. Assuming monthly inflow and outflow remain consistent, to meet our goal, we need to increase average Monthly Housing Placements from 67 to 131.

Currently 127 veterans holding new vouchers are searching for housing. While veterans are eligible for housing vouchers, the housing itself can be hard to find. Right now, San Diego has about over 100 veterans holding vouchers in search of housing.

An important part of the “Leave No Veteran Homeless” initiative is recruiting landlords who are willing to step-up and offer some of their vacant units to these veterans holding vouchers. Landlords have the power to change the life of a service member who dedicated their life to this country.
