    I was referred by the Mayors office due to COVID. Filled out application took every document that was asked of me. My issue is I did not even receive a call back after taking serval documents such as taxes, copy of my ID unemployment. Maybe it’s the policy, but I don’t like how I was treated.

Description: SBCS provides housing and services for the following groups defined as homeless:
    Domestic Violence Victims and their families escaping domestic violence
    Homeless Families
    Homeless Youth
    Chronic Homeless Individuals
Emergency Shelter & Transitional Housing
Domestic Violence Victims & Their Families
SBCS provides emergency shelter and housing for families escaping domestic violence. In order to remove barriers to leaving a domestic violence situation, SBCS allows extended family members and teenage sons to stay with family at the shelter. SBCS is one of the only shelters to provide this opportunity. In addition to housing, families receive family and individual counseling, food assistance and wrap around services that help them lead self-sufficient lives.
Homeless Families
Families make up nearly one-third of the nation's homeless population. Often a homeless situation occurs due to one unforeseen circumstance, like a death in the family, a health issue or loss of a job. Along with shelter, SBCS provides holistic supports for lifting up the entire family and creating a road to self-sufficiency. In addition, families may be eligible for rapid-rehousing vouchers.
Transitional Youth
For young people ages 18 to 24 years old, SBCS offers safe, affordable and supportive housing for former foster youth and/or homeless youth while they finish school or complete job training.
Homeless Individuals and Families
Rapid Rehousing program provides financial assistance and services to prevent individuals and families from becoming homeless. SBCS provides subsidized rent for six to 12 months for those experiencing homelessness in order to help bridge the gap to self-sufficiency.
Homeless Individuals and Families
SBCS partners with various faith-based communities throughout San Diego County to provide temporary shelter during the months of December and March.
SBCS provides more than just shelter, residents are also offered support and resources such as:
job readiness
emergency food
job opportunities
