What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our overall goal as an organization is to reduce the Homeless population in our targeted regions. We can achieve this goal by a combination of resources we have available. For instance, we have highly skilled professionals who coordinate social service programs, streamline viable resources to the client. Assisting applicants through the entire process from start to finish. Upon completion of the action plan, we encourage participation in rapid re-Housing and Job Training programs. Having our action plan can be the difference between failure and success. The action plans we implement serves only one purpose to secure housing and employment. We use our network and resources to support our clients every step of the process. If you are homeless. We don't let go until you are safe and stable.

Care Plate Program

Each Wednesday From 4:15 PM to 7:15 PM, We support the Homeless and Hungry Neighbors of the Community by preparing 50-100 Premium Home Cooked Dinners for those in need. These meals are made with lots of fresh ingredients and lots of love! If You are Homeless or Hungry you can sign up online, or by calling our office and we will deliver the dinner to you.

Population(s) Served

We provide a one month supply of Huggies baby diapers and wipes for our neighbors that are homeless, underemployed, unemployed, or experiencing hardship and need assistance. Our application process is fast, free, and secure. We can deliver to you or arrange for a pick-up.

Population(s) Served

Many of our neighbors are living unsheltered in unprecedented numbers. To help ease the burden of the elements and transgressions of living unsheltered we created an Emergency Backpack Care Kit. In this kit, one can use the Weatherproof tarp & bungee cords to provide shelter from the elements, use the extensive hygiene equipment to keep clean and groomed, Use the Emergency Space blanket to keep warm on cold nights, a flashlight to see in the dark of night, water for when your thirsty, socks, PPE masks, and a host of other essentials. These Care Kits are the difference between giving up and persevering until a change has come.

Population(s) Served

Many dogs are finding living on the street homeless is very challenging. The dogs that accompany our homeless neighbors aren't just pets, many are Emotional Support Animals. These dogs serve in a very important and vital role in the mental stability and wellbeing of the owner.

This is why it is critical for the stability of the animal, owner, and community that these animals are fed and remain healthy. That is where we come in. As we mentioned before, if your dog is hungry and you can not afford dog food, we will deliver a month's supply of food in weekly batches.
Ensuring no one will not need to cart around a large load of food or worry about feeding your companion.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to raise enough money to eventually buy a property that can house 50 homeless people. Ultimately replacing the Care Kit with a home. There they will have a home for six months, a comprehensive action plan, mental health services, grooming, laundry, and life skills training will be a few of the courses we will run. That will get them back on track to being productive members of society and eventually into affordable and permanent housing.
We will partner with social services and coordinate with our community partners to ensure every client's goal is met.

Engagement through core staff, and Volunteers. Once contact is made an action plan describing the current client's circumstances, our resources, and available funding. At the level we do not have many monetary resources. However we make up for this in our service. We treat each person with compassion, doginity, an dres

We are a group of young and energetic people looking to change their lives through service. We have an outreach engagement team to meet, counsel, and distribute our program initiatives. We have a marketing team to craft our message in the public domain. We have another group of seasoned volunteers and fundraisers who have come on board to help replenish our resources.

So far we have distributed out over 100 Care Kits to unsheltered homeless neighbors. We have clothes over 100 families from private donations. We have supplied food to hungry dogs, and anticipate 10,000 plates will be given out by the end of the year. 200 people in Downtown San Diego alone rely on Care Plates for nutritious food. We are also distributing 2000 PPE masks this fall to help stop the spread of Covid-19. Next is fundraising for our property to bring people out of poverty and into the middle class.
