Child care and workforce are an interdependent pair. If there were no working parents, there would be virtually no need for child care. And it goes the other way too. If there’s no child care, then parents of young children can’t work—unless one parent makes enough money to support the whole family, which is rarely feasible in an expensive place like San Diego.

For a soldier, sailor, airman or Marine, reintegrating into civilian life can be a challenge that includes significant barriers to securing and maintaining civilian employment. U.S. military personnel spend four months in training to enter the service and sometimes receive just four days to prepare for civilian life. Thus, many San Diego veterans lack the support needed to adjust to civilian life. Workshops for Warriors (WFW) was founded in 2008 by Hernán Luis y Prado, a 15-year United States Navy Officer, because he saw so many veterans and service members struggling to find a clear path back into civilian life.

Homelessness does not discriminate. Individuals who make up our region’s population come from a diverse background of age, race, circumstances and experiences. Some are veterans, others are under 18. Some have no family in the area, others navigate housing insecurity as a household. For some, there is addiction and disability, but one thing remains certain for all: they are fighting for survival on the streets of San Diego.
