Addressing the housing and homelessness crises in our region demands solutions driven with an equity lens. According to the Regional Task Force on Homeless San Diego’s 2020 Point in Time Count Results:
- In San Diego, Black and African American individuals experience homelessness at a disproportionate rate
- Individuals with disabilities are overrepresented in San Diego’s homelessness population, with 58 percent reporting having a disability.
- 17 percent of people living in shelters at night are veterans.
