Each year, The Salvation Army provides over 10 million nights of shelter to those in need.


About 15% of the homeless population in the U.S. is comprised of 'chronically homeless' individuals. This population is especially vulnerable during the hottest and coldest months of the year.

The Salvation Army has served San Diego for 130 years - including 267,000+ needy individuals in San Diego County last year. We continue to serve those experiencing homelessness in our neighborhoods. 

Please scroll down to see all available assistance in the San Diego Area.

As long as there's The Salvation Army, there's no such thing as 'no place to go.'

Our group homes and transitional living centers provide housing, food and overnight lodging for varying amounts of time to destitute families, the homeless, the displaced and to youth where family care is undesirable or unavailable. In addition, we supplement every shelter service with emotional and spiritual support.

Give the gift of a good night's sleep. You can help.
