Our goal at the City Heights Business Association is to make our community a cleaner, safer, and more welcoming place for residents and visitors. We are aware of the increase in homelessness and its impact on our community. CHBA partners with outside organizations who provide services to the homeless, but our organization is not equipped to address homelessness directly.
We recommend the following actions you can take to address homelessness in your neighborhood:
Submitting a Get It Done report allows the City of San Diego to track and measure its homelessness response for maximum impact.
The Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) provides community members experiencing homelessness a liaison to available social services.
The Homeless Outreach Team provides an alternative to enforcement for those who find themselves in need of assistance and willing to accept help.
PATH provides a variety of services for San Diegan's experiencing homelessness including outreach, housing navigation, interim housing, rapid rehousing, and permanent supportive housing.
CHBA's Homelessness Initiatives
We are a partner organization in the Mid-City Homeless Coalition. The coalition’s mission is to reduce the negative impacts of homelessness on our community through a neighborhood-based outreach program in North Park and City Heights to connect homeless persons to housing, services, and other supports. The coalition has contracted with PATH to provide outreach and needed services to our homeless residents since 2018.
