Member Spotlight – Crisis House


Crisis House is a landmark multi-service agency in east San Diego County since 1972, operating a collective of housing programs for survivors of domestic abuse and their children. Crisis House responds to the needs of 125 of our community’s children in our Camp HOPE program, a one-of-a-kind camping, and mentorship program that heals the children traumatized by domestic violence in their homes. Crisis House’s Mobile Homeless Outreach Team immediately responds to the needs of 677 people each year experiencing homelessness and connects them to housing and other life-saving resources. In FY 2021- 2022 alone, Crisis House served 5,456 people and ended homelessness for 292 families with 365 children.

On Valentine’s Day weekend, Saturday, February 11, 2023, Crisis House is celebrating its 3rd Annual Hearts of Gold – Inspire Hope for a Brighter Future Gala at the newly renovated U.S. Grant Hotel. The gala is their only fundraiser of the year, and they are incredibly proud that 93% of every dollar raised goes directly to programs and services.

Your support and participation in this gala will directly benefit the lives of survivors like Daniela and her children. “These were horrific times for my children and me. I can’t imagine getting through it without the comprehensive services and amazing staff at Crisis House lifting our spirits and leading us through this crisis.” Daniela confided. Crisis House is breaking the generational cycle of domestic violence by supporting women and children like Daniela on their journey toward independence.

Dust off that tux or put on that gorgeous dress hanging in your closet for the last three years and join Crisis House for a dazzling evening of celebration, dancing, a private concert by Gregory Page, Jack Tempchin, and Surprise Guest, delicious dining, and more inspiring stories. Bid on jaw-dropping auction items, including a week’s stay at a fantastic 800-year-old villa in Italy, tickets to a taping of the Kelly Clarkson Show, or dinner on a private yacht prepared by your very own chef!

We hope you will join them and Inspire Hope for a Brighter Future for a family working towards renewal and self-sufficiency.
