On January 7th, Father Joe’s Villages will renovate an old motel as the first in its Turning the Key initiative, which creates permanent housing solutions to homelessness while offering its full suite of services for its residents.
Father Joe’s Villages will host a ceremony on January 7th, 2020 announcing its first affordable housing project of the year, complete with a name dedication for the funders. A 17-foot-tall banner will unravel from the top balcony of the soon-to-be-converted building to showcase the words “Hope Lives Here,” with letters painted by community organizations in San Diego. The inside of this building – currently a motel – will become 82 units of housing for people experiencing homelessness.
Father Joe’s Villages will renovate this old motel as the first in its Turning the Key initiative, which creates permanent housing solutions to homelessness while providing full services for its residents. This project is made possible by community funders dedicated to combating the affordable housing crisis. There will be a dedication ceremony during the event to honor those funders responsible for the motel conversion.
Father Joe’s Villages’ President and CEO, Deacon Jim Vargas, will speak at the dedication as well as a guest speaker who experienced homelessness before being housed by the organization. For additional information on the unveiling please contact Shannon Sneade at email@example.com.
