“Housing first” in San Diego

As part of a shift in strategy on providing mental health services, San Diego County has adopted a new “housing first” policy. The program, dubbed Project One for All, uses a “housing first model” where, as the name suggests, people who are living on the street or in shelters are first provided long-term housing and then comprehensive care to treat their mental illness and other issues. It’s the first time that the county has used this approach to address this population.
