Homeless Vets Find Shelter From Cold | San Diego , California | NBC San Diego
Homeless veterans lined up to reserve a bed in San Diego’s only seasonal shelter for veterans living on the streets.
The shelter opened Wednesday morning, and will provide beds to 150 homeless vets living in San Diego. Non-profit agency, Veterans Village of San Diego (VVSD), runs the shelter.
When asked if there were enough beds in the shelter to house San Diego’s population of about 1,000 homeless veterans, Andre Simpson, VVSD executive vice president of shook his head.
“There are never enough beds,” Simpson said. “There’s a tremendous need for them though. Veterans would die if this place didn’t open.”
“It’s a life-saver,” he added.
