El Cajon's Programs for Change

What we are doing community wordHousing Navigator – Because each homeless situation is unique, the City has funded a Housing Navigator who works one-on-one with individuals to find permanent housing solutions and other support.  

Housing Assistance Fund – The City has allocated $80,000 to provide housing assistance for those experiencing homelessness. 

“A Way Back Home” – In partnership with the Salvation Army, the City has funded a program that reunites homeless individuals with their families who live outside our area. 

“Real CHANGE, Not Spare Change” – Did you know that just $1 of donation provides five meals* for those in hunger? This campaign promotes donating money to homeless programs rather than panhandlers. Currently, more than 27 signs have been placed through the City to bring awareness. holding a phone and browsing

Homeless Phone App – This new and easy-to-use text-based phone app helps homeless individuals connect to services around the City. 

Pet Assistance – Pets are often the greatest barrier to accessing services. The City offers free shelter for pets of homeless individuals seeking assistance.
