Dear Local Elected Officials,

Thank you for working proactively and collaboratively to make homelessness throughout San Diego a top priority.

I urge you to do the right and humane thing by using vacant and underutilized government-owned buildings to shelter and provide services to the homeless in our region as advocated by the Lucky Duck Foundation.

According to a November 2019 poll of San Diego residents, 86% said the City should play a major role in addressing homelessness and 82% said the County should play a major role in addressing homelessness.

Not only is opening buildings the humane and logical thing to do, it is also cost-effective. For example, one San Diego social service provider says a homeless individual living on the street costs more than $38,000 per year. However, that service provider’s cost for providing housing and case management is less than $16,000 per year.

There are far too many unsheltered homeless throughout San Diego County and as our elected official, you can do something about it.  I urge you to utilize government-owned buildings to shelter the unsheltered and provide critical services.

Sincerely,

Concerned San Diego County Resident
