Summary: Create Welcome Home Baskets full of housing supplies for newly housed homeless at Father Joe's Villages

The San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Club has partnered with Father Joe's Villages for four years to create Welcome Home Baskets for newly housed homeless individuals and families in downtown San Diego. Baskets include about thirty items: pots, pans, utensils, other kitchen items, cleaning and laundry supplies, and various other household items. The baskets help people make their places feel like home and prepare for subsequent inspections. In February 2022 Father Joe's Villages opened a new 407-unit facility, Saint Teresa of Calcutta Villa. We would use the funds to purchase in bulk items to fill these baskets, then Rotarians work with FJ's employees and assemble the baskets at their warehouse for pickup.
