About This Activity

Join HomeAid San Diego, in partnership with NAIOP - San Diego Commercial Real Estate - at the inaugural STEP UP! Walk to End Homelessness on October 27, 2019 at scenic Mission Bay to learn more about the homelessness issues across San Diego county, what’s being done to alleviate these issues and how you can provide a helping hand.  

STEP UP!, a 5K out and back walk, will feature educational stations every ¼ mile that provide information about the dire issues facing over 8,000 men, women and children that live on the streets across San Diego county every night.  The stations will also highlight the good work being done by organizations in San Diego to help build shelters, housing and provide basic human services.

Additionally, participants will get a chance to meet local organizations that are helping the homeless in San Diego every day at the STEP UP! Pavilion throughout the event.

Every step counts in this fight to end homelessness across San Diego.  Join HomeAid San Diego in partnership with NAIOP to raise awareness and funds to build more housing and shelters for San Diego’s homeless men, women and children.

Who We Serve

Unlike any time in America’s history, today’s homeless are primarily women, children, and families. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of today’s homeless are not the people seen on the street. Today’s homeless are the “Invisible Homeless” who are without a place to live due to unforeseen life circumstances. They are parents who had to choose between paying the rent or paying for a daughter’s medicine. They are mothers who removed their children from abusive fathers. They are parents who lost their job because a manufacturer closed a plant. They are pregnant teens who were thrown out by angry parents. They are emancipated foster youth without a place to live or a means of support. They are senior citizens and veterans who no longer have a family to care for them. They are abused children removed from their homes for their safety. They are victims of natural disasters and other catastrophes. They are veterans returning from recent wars.

 

These homeless simply need a temporary home to regroup, catch their breath and rebuild their lives.
