For the Unhoused Care Team, helping a client get matched with housing does not always mean a conclusion to our work of care and support. Recently a member of the team reached out to Allen, a client we had helped secure housing in 2023. He shared that he had fallen behind on rent due to unforeseen expenses that he could not cover on his current income. Working with our team, he was able to apply and be approved for rental assistance through the Downtown San Diego Partnership. Not only was the program able to take care of the past due rent, Allen now has the support, compassion, and commitment of the Unhoused Care Team to help him get back on track and remain stably housed.

It was great to connect with Ivy Rooney with IVY Pharmacy, a neighborhood pharmacy in Hillcrest. Ivy is part of the Eliminate Hepatitis C San Diego County Initiative. We talked about some of the work they are doing with Family Health Centers of San Diego, Dreams for Change and Downtown San Diego Partnership to successfully connect unhoused individuals with Hepatitis C and HIV into care and treatment. So much is being done, and yet there is so much more to do. With all our health champions working together, we can eliminate Hep C and get HIV cases to zero.

President Joe Biden's proposed $7.3 trillion budget for Fiscal Year 2025 largely maintains domestic HIV and hepatitis spending, but advocates say that's not enough to meet the federal government's goal of reducing HIV infections by 90% by 2030.

Our executive director Scott A. Suckow met with Kat Murti, executive director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, while in DC. They are the largest national youth-led network dedicated to ending the War on Drugs. This new relationship builds from our ongoing work with Gretchen Bergman and A New PATH (Parents for Addiction Treatment and Healing). This focus on harm reduction aligns with our End Hep C SD initiative to eliminate hepatitis C by 2030.
