URGENT NEWS: SAN DIEGO HOMELESS SENIORS COVID-19 RESPONSE FUND

Funders Together to End Homelessness San Diego, a collaborative of San Diego Grantmakers, has established a fund to pay for hotel rooms for homeless seniors and others who are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19.


There are over 2000 homeless people in San Diego who are age 65+ living on the streets and in crowded shelters.  In order to protect these seniors from illness and to flatten the curve, we need to quickly move them into hotel rooms.


The County of San Diego, and other government entities, are securing hotel rooms for people who have already contracted COVID-19. This fund expands upon those efforts by targeting people who are high-risk but have not yet gotten sick. Homeless seniors are especially vulnerable to becoming ill, and, once ill, face increased morbidity. We need to act now to prevent them from getting sick in the first place.


To contribute to this fund, please contact Amy Denhart or use the link below.
