Father Joe’s Villages: How a One-Stop-Shop Tackles Homelessness in San Diego
Beckman, Sara L.
Publication date: 10/1/2022, pages 1-12

Father Joe’s Villages (FJV), a nonprofit in San Diego, California, seeks to prevent and end homelessness. FJV developed a wide variety of support from housing, meals, health care, after-school programs, employment support, vocational training, and chaplaincy. FJV is relatively unique in tackling homelessness in the US - striving to be a "one-stop-shop" for people experiencing homelessness. Others (see companion San Rafael: How Uncommon Stakeholder Alliances Reduced Chronic Homelessness case study) distribute services, making them harder to coordinate and access. Students can consider the complex systems nature of homelessness and how organizations such as FJV may centralize social services via outsourcing or partnerships.
