The Specialty Auction provides another way for donors to simultaneously purchase something for themselves and support Father Joe’s efforts to end homelessness. Other ways to do that include shopping at the furniture warehouse and three thrift stores. Proceeds from all these ventures support the myriad Father Joe’s programs to aid homeless and working poor individuals.
San Diego is home to more than 9,000 homeless men, women and families, making it the fourth largest population of homeless in the U.S. and the third largest for homeless veterans. In 2013, Father Joe’s Villages and partner agencies provided services to more than 15,000 people, served over 3,000 meals daily to the homeless and working poor and helped seven out of 10 people served by Village programs to exit to permanent housing.
ABOUT FATHER JOE’S VILLAGES/ST. VINCENT DE PAUL VILLAGE
As Southern California’s largest residential homeless services provider, Father Joe’s Villages and partner agency St. Vincent de Paul Village have been empowering people to achieve self-sufficiency for over 62 years. What started as a small chapel serving San Diego’s impoverished has grown into a cutting-edge provider of innovative housing programs and services. Father Joe’s Villages and St. Vincent de Paul Village prepare over 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 200 children and over 200 military veterans. As industry thought-leaders, the two agencies offer innovative solutions to address the complex needs of the homeless, regardless of age, race, culture or beliefs. The organizations’ primary goal is to transform lives and end the cycle of homelessness. To this end they provide housing, healthcare, food, clothing, education, job training and child development in an internationally modeled “one-stop-shop” approach. The organizations’ mission is made possible only through the efforts of compassionate staff, dedicated volunteers, and generous public and private donors.
