What We Do

The Regional Taskforce on the Homeless (RTFH) is an integrated array of stakeholders committed to preventing and alleviating homelessness in San Diego. We provide essential data and insights on the issue of homelessness, informing policy and driving system design and performance.

In January 2017, RTFH formally merged with the regional Continuum of Care (CoC), a consortium of representatives tasked with strategic planning and coordination of resources to strengthen our collective impact. Leveraging the comprehensive resources of the CoC, the new RTFH has become a singular organization with a singular goal: to end homelessness in the San Diego region.




Our Vision

An end to homelessness in the San Diego region.

Our Mission

To provide comprehensive data and trusted analysis that empowers the entire community to identify, implement, and support efforts to prevent and alleviate homelessness.
