The Trinity House, established in July 2005, is not aligned with any organization or sect. We serve anyone affected by or at risk of homelessness and have the capacity to serve clients with multiple complicated service needs. The Mission of The Trinity House is to provide transitional housing in San Diego to underserved individuals and families in need, and to coordinate successful re-integration of residents into the community by promoting a positive transformation of their lives. View our Strategic Plan. The Vision of The Trinity House is to function as a catalyst for societal awareness that will spur others into action toward working together in bringing an end to homelessness.
While thousands of homeless people in San Diego are forced to live on the streets, in wooded or industrial areas, in cars, or abandoned buildings, The Trinity House does provide a clean, sober, safe, and nurturing transitional shelter for those who elect to abide by our simple behavioral rules and participate, enthusiastically, in our empowerment programs. The Trinity House operates our primary transitional shelter with 16 beds, and we have a direct link to one other residential facilities for a total of 36 beds. Sadly, The Trinity House receives over 1,000 calls annually from individuals and families desperate for shelter so all too often these overflow residences are full.
The Trinity House effectively reaches and serves the human casualties of our dismal local economy in a pro-active way that prevents individuals from descending further into more dire circumstances, such as living on the streets or in their car. The Trinity House is an essential part of San Diego’s solution to homelessness - we fill a unique and vital niche by offering a specialized service that focuses on helping clients become self-sufficient.
