What Mayor Todd Gloria’s administration has done to create a better San Diego for all of us



  • Created the Homelessness Strategies and Solutions Department
  • Opened a diverse array of new shelters, adding hundreds of new beds, both congregate and non-congregate, serving seniors, women, families, LGBTQ+ youth and people struggling with addiction and other behavioral health issues
  • Negotiated and passed the Tenant Protections Ordinance in partnership with Council President Sean Elo-Rivera to provide additional protections to renters facing no-fault evictions and to help keep people housed
  • Distributed more than $200 million in rent relief and $5 million in legal aid assistance for renters
  • Secured passage of the Unsafe Camping Ordinance in partnership with City Councilmember Stephen Whitburn and banned unsanitary tent encampments citywide
  • Launched and then expanded the person-centered Coordinated Street Outreach Program, which deploys outreach workers in all areas of the City who build trust with unsheltered residents to persuade them to accept shelter and services
  • Expanded the Safe Parking Program, first by making one of the three existing sites operational for 24 hours a day, and then by opening a fourth lot that includes 12 camper trailers for families experiencing homelessness
  • Created a comprehensive shelter strategy that includes an analysis of current shelter options and potential locations for expanding shelter opportunities over the short, medium and long terms
  • Opened the first Safe Sleeping site at the City Operations Yard at 20th and B streets, creating space for 136 City-provided tents for individuals and couples experiencing homelessness
  • Strengthened the City’s capacity to prevent and end homelessness by commissioning a comprehensive report on homelessness by Matthew Doherty, the former executive director for the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness, that included key insights, findings and recommendations
  • Helped launch the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) “House America” initiative by becoming an inaugural member of the federal government’s direct response to the homelessness crisis
