City of San Diego VISTA Leader
The City of San Diego, in partnership with several nonprofit organizations, established a place-based initiative in June 2016. This initiative was created to address the challenges of areas with deep and persistent poverty, while recognizing and leveraging the many assets already in place within the community. Today, the neighborhood you grow up in impacts your odds of graduating from high school, whether you are likely to face chronic disease, and your lifelong economic opportunities. The goal of this effort is to ensure that everyone has equal access to opportunity, and that the place you are born does not determine your destiny. This initiative also has over 60 nonprofit and public agency partners, a diverse community base, and enjoys close proximity to downtown San Diego.
