San Diego's Haitian Humanitarian Emergency

The hundreds of Haitians arriving at the San Diego-Tijuana border have overwhelmed community and faith-based organizations struggling to find them shelter and provide other essential services. Following a September 21 teleconference about this issue, we've begun compiling a list of information, resources, and funding options on the Past Programs page of this site for grantmakers wanting to help.


We're Hiring!
