Abstract or Description

What started as a modest shelter for homeless families in downtown San Diego, has grown into Father Joe’s Villages (FJV), a multi-program, multi-dimensional approach to break the cycle of homelessness.

Since 1982, Fr. Joe’s Villages’ vision and mission reflect the aim the organization is determined to achieve within the communities it serves: to ensure that all neighbors in need will have access to food, housing, career development, healthcare, and education that will promote independence, self-sufficiency and fulfillment of one’s potential. To address these needs, FJV provides short and long term transitional housing for homeless men, women and families, and offers a “Continuum of Care” to provide medical services, job development, substance abuse treatment, mental health services, parenting, budgeting, and educational support. Services are delivered through seven main programs located in San Diego County, Riverside County, and Mexico.

This is a look at their internal controls.
