The 18th Annual Thanksgiving Day 5k By Father Joe's Villages

Father Joe’s legacy lives on

In 2020, Father Joe’s Villages provided meals to more than 9,200 people, over one million meals. Every day, the organization offers three daily meals to people living in their emergency housing, bridge shelters and transitional housing programs and a daily lunch for community members in need through the Franklin Antonio Public Lunch Program.

With the lack of nutritious food resources, the short and long-term health issues people experience often makes the road to ending their homelessness much more challenging. All donations received toward the Thanksgiving 5K will further help Father Joe’s Villages in providing meals to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

About Father Joe’s Villages

As San Diego’s largest homeless services provider, Father Joe’s Villages ensures that each person can rediscover hope and leave homelessness behind. To address the complex needs of people who are homeless, the organization provides housing for more than 2,500 people each night, along with health care, substance use disorder treatment, job training, therapeutic childcare and more. This mission is made possible only through the efforts of compassionate staff, volunteer work, car donation, and generous public and private charitable contributions.
