Uniting to End Youth Homelessness
Every November, the YMCA of San Diego County aims to address youth homelessness through a powerful Solidarity Journey. Through this multi-day trek, we come together as a community, engaging partners, community members, and public officials to spread awareness and amplify our message far and wide.
In an inspiring move this year, the team will embark on a transformative two-week journey from San Diego to Sacramento, carrying a powerful message of hope and unity around this important cause. YMCA staff members Justin and David will lead the way, rallying over 550 squad members in coming together to create meaningful and lasting change.
“Throughout this experience we will laugh, learn, cry, and vibe out together each step of the way” -Justin Lipford
Our vision is crystal clear: to end youth homelessness in California. As experts in this field, YMCA Youth & Family Services has developed a proven response system that supports over 1,000 youth annually. But we won’t stop there. With your support, we aim to expand our impact, reaching thousands of young people who face homelessness on our streets every day. We believe the investment needed to support the expansion of our system will be found within our community of healers and hope dealers.
