There are only three homeless shelters in North County and at least 787 unsheltered people, according to the last Point in Time Count, and homeless service providers in the region agree that number is rapidly growing. 

All three of those shelters are almost always at capacity, meaning people who need shelter in North County don’t have access to any.

Greg Anglea, CEO of Interfaith Community Services, which operates one of the shelters in North County, breaks down what Interfaith and its fellow service providers need to be able to respond more effectively.

Here’s a look at some of their best work from 2022.
