ENDING YOUTH HOMELESSNESS

Since 2012, Urban Street Angels has helped homeless youth to develop the essential life and job skills they need in order to leave the streets for good.

Our CHALLENGE

50% of California’s unhoused population had their first experience with homelessness between the ages of 18 and 25. Known as opportunity youth, this critical demographic has the potential to leave the streets behind for good when provided with the support needed to make a change in their lives. Today, in San Diego alone, there are over 1,500 young people struggling to break the cycle of homelessness.

Hungry, cold, shelterless, and unsure, how would you persevere? Using supportive resources and essential job and skills training, we know our youth can.

Urban Street Angels has made it our mission to serve this under-supported group, and in so doing, make meaningful progress toward ending homelessness in San Diego and beyond.

 

We have helped over 7000 young adults.

2023 Victories

418 UNIQUE YOUTH SERVED IN OUR PROGRAMS

208 Young adults attained 1st-time employment

171 Young adults leased their first apartment

Our PROGRAMS

In 2023, our employment programs helped over 200 youth transition off the streets.

It is with joy we continue to see flows of our youth graduate from the streets to independent job holders. When we provide supportive environments and employment opportunities for our youth, they grab hold of skills that set them up for success in life.
