Increase In The San Diego Homeless Population - Copy

January 16, 20232 min read

Every month a handful of volunteers work with the Downtown San Diego Partnership to take a census count of those experiencing homelessness in Downtown San Diego. Last month’s numbers are in, and as expected, the number of those currently unhoused in the City of San Diego has yet again increased. According to the Downtown San Diego Partnership, 1,839 people were homeless in Downtown San Diego in December of 2022. That is 133 more than November 2022. This is the highest number in 10 years since the count started.  For reference, the unsheltered count started in 2012 when there were just 582 homeless individuals reported.

Keep in mind that these numbers are only for the downtown San Diego area. Overall, the 2022 Point-in-Time Count (from May 2022) found no less than 8,427 individuals experiencing homelessness across San Diego County, a 10% increase year over year.

Despite the City’s best efforts, numbers are increasing. According to a statement by Mayor Todd Gloria,  “First, it’s important to note in your story that the Regional Task Force on Homelessness recently reported that for every 10 people who are placed into housing, 13 others become homeless. The City’s programs are working, but the high cost of housing and other factors are making the problem worse.”

So what can be done? Unfortunately, this is not a once solution answer. San Diego can expand current shelter capacity, increase non-congregate shelter options and include pets in the temporary housing plan, increase outreach for those with mental health or addiction rehabilitation needs, and create more low and low-income permanent affordable housing. 

According to the Deputy Director of Mayor Todd Gloria’s office, “In 2022 alone, more than 1,500 people have been placed into permanent housing through the City’s street outreach, shelter and Safe Parking programs. They are more than stopgap interventions; they are connections to housing,” Rolland said.
