Grotarian Event – Connections Housing Tour

March 8, 2017 at 5:30 am to 7:30 pm

Wednesday March 8, 2017
5:30pm to 7:30pm
Connections Housing
1250 6th Avenue,
San Diego, CA 92101

Join Grotarians, Rotarians and Rotaracts at Connections Housing, located at 1250 6th Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101. The building is the old World Trade Center, previously the Harcourt Brace Building and originally the San Diego Club. The Ten Downing restaurant was once in the space where the swimming pool was located. What is Connections Housing? In 2008, the San Diego City Council, with the support of the Mayor, the San Diego Housing Commission and CCDC initiated a vision for a one-stop homeless services center. In 2010, a volunteer citizen’s panel, along with the approval of the San Diego City Counsel, selected PATH as the lead agency for the project. PATH San Diego’s Connections Housing is a partnership which brings a variety of agencies together under one roof to meet the many needs of the downtown homeless population. The Interim Housing program accommodates 150 people at one time, and is designed to move people off the street quickly. Clients suing this short-term housing are encouraged to stay in the building throughout the day to access the three dozen plus services provided in the PATH Depot.

We will tour the facility and view the services which the facility provides. With the rise of homeless in San Diego this is a very current issue and something we should all be aware of.

After the tour concludes(about an hour), we will move next door to the Union Bank Building, 530 B Street, Suite 300, at the offices of Messner & Smith. We will have access to the outdoor 3rd floor terrace where catered barbeque sandwiches, from the Barbeque Boss, and liquid refreshments will be served.

Parking should be available on the street and automatic (credit card required) parking will be available in the Union Bank’s underground facility.

Cost per person is $15 for Rotarians and their guests, and $8 for Rotaracts. (If you are a Rotaract registering for this event, please register using the “discount pricing” and add a (R) at the end of your last name)
