Interfaith Shelter Network 

FACT SHEET 

WHAT: Case-Managed Emergency Shelter from October to May.

WHO: More than 250 family members, singles or couples stay for over 7,000 nights/year (an average of five weeks per client). The program is open to those who are clean and sober, free of severe mental illness and willing and able to work on a plan to end their homelessness.

HOW: 60 temples and churches that open their doors for two or four weeks a year to

12-15 guests/clients referred by participating case management agencies. The synagogues and churches are assisted by 55+ other congregations that help in providing nighttime staffing, three meals a day and other needs in the shelter. The guests receive a lot of one-on-one attention from the volunteers.

SUCCESSES: Over 50 percent of guests leave the shelters for their own housing. 50 percent of adults have procured a job or other source of income before leaving. Stays of up to eight weeks are permitted, based on compliance with rules and progress on a mutually agreed case plan.

NUMBER SERVED: In 27 years, the program has served 8,500 people for a total of 218,000 nights.

OTHER SERVICES: Volunteers also run Career Planning Workshops and Budgeting Workshops which adult guests are required to attend.

HOW TO REFER: 2-1-1 San Diego maintains daily contact and knows what shelters have available beds. Alternatively, you can contact the social services agencies listed by area to arrange for intake screenings. These agencies are sub-contracted with the Network to provide on-going case management for guests of the Rotational Shelter Program.

TRANSITIONAL HOUSING: The Network’s El Nido Transitional Living Program, housed in an 11-unit apartment complex in San Diego, is in its 15th year of operation. El Nido is a domestic violence program and serves battered women with children coming from downtown shelters. Participants spend one year working on ending unhealthy family patterns and learning new ones. To date, El Nido has served 200 families.

The families work on ending patterns that may have contributed to their homelessness and learn independent living skills over a period of a year or more.

Interfaith Shelter Network is funded in part with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program funds provided by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)

Supported by the City and County of San Diego, the cities of Chula Vista, La Mesa, Oceanside, and San Marcos, and by community donations.
