The San Diego County Board of Supervisors has approved a proposal to allocate $8 million towards housing programs for over 900 individuals undergoing treatment for drug and alcohol abuse. This initiative, spearheaded by County Supervisor Jim Desmond, expands upon a successful pilot program and aims to provide stable housing for vulnerable members of the homeless community actively seeking recovery.
The pilot program, initially launched in 2021, demonstrated significant success in helping individuals overcome addiction and transition back into stable housing. The expansion, funded for two years, will build upon this success by offering housing assistance to a significantly larger group. . .
