Father Joe's Villages
Father Joe’s Village and its partner agencies have been empowering people to achieve self-sufficiency for 65 years. Established in 1950, our agency has evolved from a small program handing out peanut butter sandwiches to an internationally recognized, cutting edge provider of effective housing programs and services that save, inspire and change lives in San Diego. Our mission is to prevent and end homelessness one life at a time. We achieve our mission by providing outcome-based programs in the spirit of our CREED (Compassion, Respect, Empathy, Empowerment, Dignity).
The services we offer include affordable and welcoming permanent housing with flexible supportive services; beautiful and safe temporary housing for our homeless neighbors working to secure an income for permanent housing; a California-licensed community clinic and Federally Qualified Health Center that provides integrated behavioral and physical healthcare and a state-certified outpatient addiction treatment program specializing in treating low-income and homeless patients; and individualized evidence-based supportive services including multidisciplinary team support, therapeutic childcare, employment skills training, nutritious meals and more.
