Jewish Family Service (JFS) Safe Parking
Every night, JFS operates a Safe Parking Program for unsheltered San Diegans living out of their vehicles, many of whom are experiencing homelessness for the first time. As these individuals and families work to lift themselves up out of a difficult situation, many are making a nightly choice between buying food or purchasing gas to get to work and school. Creating further barriers to stability are the isolation and lack of social support that so often accompany homelessness.
The Safe Parking Program provides a welcoming environment, meaningful resources and tools, and dignified support to help families stabilize and transition back into permanent housing. With holistic services focused on basic needs assistance, employment, family wellness, school success, financial education, credit repair, and housing, our goal is to create a pathway out of homelessness while being a support to people where they are now.

Hand Up Youth Food Pantry
In partnership with JFS, we’re committed to fighting hunger and making sure that everyone in our community is food secure. In addition to our annual drives during the High Holy Days and Purim, there is always a collection bin in our lobby throughout the year. You do not need to wait until a specific time to bring in items. Feel free to bring a non-perisahble item (or two or three) whenever you’re coming by TIS. Donations need not be kosher.
