Continuing to advance the focused effort to end veteran homelessness in the City of San Diego, the Regional Task Force on the Homeless (RTFH) and its partners have signed onto a national initiative known as Built for Zero, led by Community Solutions.

This action boosts the City’s Community Action Plan on Homelessness and supports the momentum to end veteran homelessness across the county.

“Ending homelessness in San Diego can be a reality if we take different approaches than we have in the past,” said Mayor Todd Gloria. “Built for Zero is a proven method. It works because it does more than just count people. It will force us to take a hard look at the resources we have available and how we match those resources with the people who need them. Cities across the country have shown they can end homelessness with Built for Zero. There is no reason San Diego cannot be a shining example of how to help our unhoused neighbors.”
