Vets’ shelter to remain open in Midway District until July

Mayor Filner appropriates funds from budget surplus

On Tuesday, April 22, the San Diego City Council voted to keep open the homeless veterans’ tent shelter at 2801 Sports Arena Boulevard.

The shelter, a 150-bed facility for homeless vets that usually operates from December until mid April, will remain open until July. Mayor Bob Filner announced that the $250,000 funding to extend the shelter’s operation will come from the city’s budget surplus of $3.6 million.

The Veterans Village of San Diego, which operates the shelter, said the additional time will give homeless veterans more of a chance to find permanent housing.
