Prison Programs, Mobile Food Program, and Homeless & Refugee Support

Food Program

We bought a food truck! We’ve partnered with Urban Life to help identify families with food insecurity and have been delivering food to them weekly. We’ve also partnered with Monarch school in downtown San Diego by bringing our mobile food truck to their campus to serve 50 families after school each week. The Monarch School has been serving San Diego for over three decades, beginning as a one-room education center and expanding into a K-12 comprehensive school designed to educate homeless youth. In addition, we’ve been working with local resettlement agencies to deliver food to newly settled Afghan refugees. We provide food, supplies, and assist with furnishing apartments as families slowly begin to find more permanent housing. We’re so excited to serve our neighbors here in San Diego!

San Quentin

For the last couple of years, we’ve been leading teams monthly into San Quentin to work with a special group of people who are incarcerated. San Quentin is the oldest prison in California and the state’s only death row, though governors have imposed a moratorium on executions since 2006. There are currently about 3,000 incarcerated at the prison. We had to take a year hiatus due to covid especially as the incarcerated were particularly hit hard by the virus, but we’ve now resumed our ability to visit. We look forward to the several special guests that are lined up to encourage our friends at San Quentin through our Dream Big class. In addition, as part of our prison programs we’ve begun investing in a transitional home in Washington D.C. to further help and support the incarcerated as they transition to a new season of life.
