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 a 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.
