Reduce and end homelessness in San Diego, ensuring that if this situation does happen for anyone, it remains a rare, brief and non-recurring instance; not an outcome.
The RTFH is the homeless policy expert and lead coordinator for the introduction of new models in the San Diego region and implementation of best practices. Collaboration in the region and utilizing data are key ways to end homelessness, and we continue to expand the network of those who are touched by homelessness improve lives.
As the Lead Agency for San Diego region’s Continuum of Care (CoC), the RTFH is governed by a Board of Directors and is the collaborative applicant to Housing and Urban Development (HUD), responsible for this regional’s annual PIT Count (WeAllCount), hosting an Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) for the San Diego region and the Imperial County region, operating the Coordinated Entry System (CES), and acting as the funding source grantee for the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP), the Homeless Emergency Aid Program (HEAP), and Homeless Housing, Assistance and Prevention (HHAP).
