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.
