San Diego-Based Organizations Explore a Merger to Expand Homeless Services

Dreams for Change provides programs to families and individuals to prevent them from becoming chronically homeless. Its Safe Parking Program offers a place to park at night for working families and individuals who are living out of their vehicles. Founded over 100 years ago, Jewish Family Service offers a multitude of programs to low- and moderate-income children, families, individuals and seniors. The two organizations explored the possibility of merging to provide more integrated services and expand the Safe Parking Program. A grant from The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration supported the cost of a consultant to facilitate the exploration.
