As San Diego’s largest homeless services provider, Father Joe’s Villages offers a wide variety of housing and services at several locations including:
Inspired by the legacy of much famed Saint Vincent de Paul, what started as a small chapel serving San Diego’s impoverished more than 65 years ago has grown into a cutting-edge provider of housing programs and services.
We prepare up to 3,000 meals and provide a continuum of care to nearly 1,500 individuals every day—from infants and adolescents to adults and seniors. This includes over 150 children and over 200 military veterans. As industry thought leaders, we offer effective tailored-to-client solutions to address the complex needs of the homeless, regardless of age, race, culture or beliefs. Our primary goal is to transform lives and end the cycle of homelessness.
