RTFH Changes its Name to Better Reflect the Reality of People Experiencing Homelessness
What may seem like a minor change is intended to send a very big message from the non-profit organization that leads, coordinates, promotes and advocates for innovative solutions to prevent and end homelessness in the San Diego region.

RTFH 2020-21 Annual Report
Effective Messaging Strategies for Housing as a Solution to Homelessness
Compared to many other US cities that implemented successful evidence-based interventions to homelessness, the concept of adopting “Housing First” models has been comparatively less well received in the San Diego region despite the foundational role it plays in the region’s homeless service system. Over the past year, Funders Together to End Homelessness San Diego (FTEHSD) led a multi-faceted research campaign to determine which messaging is most effective in ensuring that San Diegans consider housing as a solution to homelessness. Read more about this campaign and its findings below.
Statement on Racial Inequality and Action
The Regional Task Force on Homelessness stands in solidarity with our member organizations and community members in condemning the violence and injustice perpetrated against Black Americans.
Homelessness disproportionately affects people of color in the San Diego region and reflects the economic and racial divides that persist in this country. The RTFH is committed to addressing racial inequality and amplifying the perspectives of people of color with lived experience in our work, communication, and organizational decision-making.
Impact by Numbers
Working with our partner agencies in the Continuum of Care (CoC) and local and state agencies, we’re making a measureable difference in our mission to end homelessness.
