Hope for San Diego
changes lives

We hope for San Diego

Can you imagine a city where all people thrive? A city where everyone sleeps in a warm bed at night? A city where all children are safely nurtured in healthy families? A city where neighbors welcome strangers with open arms? That’s the vision of Hope for San Diego—a renewed city where even the most vulnerable thrive.

Working toward that vision means Hope for San Diego walks into the shadows of our city to be the hands and feet of hope to those who need it most.

Our Mission

In light of Christ’s love, Hope for San Diego engages our community to care for and invest in our under-served neighbors.

Our Values

  • Hopeful Presence

    Our name is our vision—we embrace hope for the community we call home.

  • Holistic Renewal

    Human brokenness extends to all aspects of life, so renewal must address the needs of the whole person—social, emotional, economic, physical, and spiritual.

  • Love for the City

    We engage our community with the love of Christ, and serve out of gratitude for his grace and mercy toward us.

  • Investment for Lasting Change

    Lasting change is our goal, so we make investments that are sustainable, measurable, and financially accountable as we seek transformed lives and a renewed city.

  • Collaborative Approach

    We mobilize like-minded people and churches to partner with non-profit organizations throughout San Diego that are serving the needs of the most vulnerable and creating opportunities for them to thrive.
