 Alpha Project for the Homeless empowers individuals, families, and communities by providing work, recovery, and support services to people who are motivated to change their lives and achieve self-sufficiency. 

 Casa de Amparo supports those affected by and at risk of child abuse and neglect, through a range of programs and services that promote healing, growth, and healthy relationships. The organization ensures that children and their families receive unique and innovative services for healing, stopping child mistreatment of any kind, and for ending generational cycles of abuse. 

 ElderHelp of San Diego provides personalized services and information that help seniors remain independent and live with dignity in their own homes. ElderHelp is an integral part of the spectrum of government, health care, and community-based providers focused on providing long-term solutions for seniors struggling to navigate complex challenges. 

 Foundation for Women Warriors is a 100-year-old nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring and empowering the women veteran community. Often overshadowed by their male counterparts, the organization’s programs honor, empower and support the women who answered our nation’s call to serve. 

 Jewish Family Service of San Diego is a client-centered, impact-driven organization working to build a stronger, healthier, more resilient San Diego. The organization partners with people of all backgrounds to build stable and dignified lives. 

 Just in Time for Foster Youth is a nonprofit that serves young people out of the foster care system after age 18 who leave without a safety net or a family to assist with their transition to adulthood. JIT provides a community of support to help these young adults stay on the path to self-sufficiency.  

 Monarch School San Diego educates students impacted by homelessness. Operating under the San Diego County Office of Education’s Juvenile Court and Community Schools educational program, Monarch has developed an innovative approach to learning where students gain the skills they need to improve their lives, develop awareness of their emotions, explore their passions and plan for a life of self-sufficient living. 

 Serving Seniors is a nonprofit organization helping poor and homeless seniors to thrive, using an innovative model of whole-person, wraparound support including meals, housing, health and social services, and lifelong learning. The organization was established in 1970 under the umbrella of Catholic Charities as a nutrition site providing lunches to disadvantaged seniors. 

 Since its founding in 2000, SDWF has now granted over $4.4 million to more than 100 nonprofit organizations that serve under-resourced communities in the San Diego region.
