The Community Action Partnership (CAP) provides homeless services through the County's Hotel Voucher Program for eight months out of the year (October through mid-May).  The County coordinates its Hotel Voucher Program with the Emergency Food and Shelter program (funded by FEMA) that provides hotel vouchers for homeless families for four months during the summer.

The homeless services administered through CAP are a component of the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program.  CAP has developed a network of community partners serving the homeless in San Diego that work with the FSS contracted agencies to provide a continuum of care for families eligible to the program and who are willing and ready to take part in case management to address barriers to becoming self-sufficient and obtain stable housing.

The Interfaith Shelter Network Program

The Interfaith Shelter Network Program assists homeless individuals and families in securing permanent housing and income, by providing case management and support services from neighborhood agencies coordinated by the Interfaith Shelter Network. The Network provides up to 90 extra shelter beds in the County for up to seven months during cold-weather season, from October through May. This program serves mentally competent homeless persons who are free of substance abuse and operates in seven (7) of the most heavily populated areas in the county. The areas served are: East San Diego, Coastal San Diego, Clairemont San Diego; in North County: Coastal and Inland; and South and East regions of the County. Shelter is offered for 6 to 26 weeks in each area and a minimum of one case management agency serves each area.

In addition to emergency lodging, Interfaith Shelter Network also provides:

  • Food and hygiene items
  • Case management and problem solving
  • Career guidance and employment assistance
  • Transitional or permanent housing
  • Moral Support at religious congregation facilities

ALL guests must be screened/referred by a case management agency serving that branch.
