Cold Weather Shelter Voucher Program

Printer Friendly
Font Size Extra Large Font Size Large Font Size Default

Since 1997, the County has sponsored and funded a Cold Weather Shelter Voucher Program to serve the San Diego region. The program typically runs from late November through April and provides vouchers for hotel/motel rooms for families with children, the disabled, and the elderly during the winter season. Catholic Charities administers that program for the County, coordinating with various community based homeless service agencies from around the region.

This regional voucher program is a flexible supplement to winter shelter facilities provided by various cities and allows the County to provide for winter shelter needs where such facilities are unavailable. Major funding for the program comes from the County's Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) with contributions from HCD on behalf of the Urban County and additional contributions from many of the region's cities.
