Hundreds of people will be walking on Saturday August 3, to help end homelessness in San Diego
It is Father Joe’s Villages’ A Short Walk Home which aims to raise awareness and $100,000 for homeless services. 500 participants to walk through a giant door at the finish line to symbolize a place to call home for people in need
Several hundred San Diego residents will lace up their sneakers and walk two miles to get active in solving the region’s homelessness crisis during "A Short Walk Home", San Diego’s only walk to end homelessness. After walking through the giant door at the finish line, participants will have the chance to explore Father Joe’s Villages programs and join staff in various activities, including writing notes of encouragement to be displayed at the Village.
San Diegans concerned about our community’s homelessness crisis have been forming teams to help collect donations to support Father Joe’s Villages’ work to help people experiencing homelessness get back on their feet. After weeks of fundraising, walking through the front door at the finish line will be more than a gesture of solidarity; every dollar raised of the $100,000 goal will help to transform lives.
