Transitional Housing for Homeless Seniors

Serving Seniors’ Transitional Housing Program (THP) helps homeless seniors get off the streets by providing transitional housing and supportive services as a direct stepping stone to permanent affordable housing. THP clients live rent-free in a studio unit at the Sara Frances Hometel for 90-120 days while meeting weekly with a case manager at the Gary & Mary West Senior Wellness Center to access permanent affordable housing and address their most pressing issues.

To date, this program has helped over 800 clients find permanent, affordable housing throughout San Diego County and become entirely self-sufficient.
