Registration is now open for the 22nd Annual Father Joe’s Villages 5K, presented by Aya Healthcare! San Diego’s longest-standing Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot benefits Father Joe’s Villages Food Services Programs, which provides nearly a million meals annually. 

Father Joe’s Villages’ holistic approach to help individuals experiencing homelessness is centered around four pillars: Meeting Basic Needs, Investing in Children, Making Health a Priority, and Strengthening Self-Sufficiency. It is crucial that our neighbors have their basic needs met before they can achieve long-term independence, and three nutritious meals a day are essential to their overall well-being.
