Good Neighbor Month

September 1 - September 30


What is Good Neighbor Month?

Good Neighbor Month is a month-long celebration of the power of giving and kindness to our neighbors in need. Through a series of events and a social media movement, we hope to inspire others to become Good Neighbors and unlock the potential of communities to see all of San Diego shine.

Every day, Good Neighbors demonstrate incredible compassion for their neighbors. During Good Neighbor Month, we will highlight individuals and groups who are Good Neighbors in their communities.

In the face of San Diego’s homelessness crisis, we must remind ourselves about the power of hope, resilience and giving back. This September, let us celebrate the potential in each of us to make all of San Diego shine.



How can I be a Good Neighbor?

  1. Attend an Event | Check out Father Joe’s Villages’ September events, including Block Parties in Chula Vista, Imperial Beach and San Diego and a special movie and art event: The Art of Ending Homelessness. See below for more information.
  2. Tune in | Watch Father Joe’s Villages Game Takeover of the Padres vs. St. Louis Cardinals game on September 5 at 7:10 PM to learn more about Father Joe’s Villages and how to give back.
  3. Inspire | Share a photo expressing what being a Good Neighbor means to you. Tag the post with #SDGoodNeighbor. Also, spread the word about Father Joe’s Villages’ mission by sharing our short film Shine.
  4. Donate | Become a monthly donor to continue being a Good Neighbor even after September ends. Just $10 a month can help a family access the resources they need to find their way home.
