What Is Sunbreak Ranch?

Sunbreak Ranch is a new approach to the nationwide homeless crisis that offers real hope, not more of the futile same. 

Sunbreak Ranch is a central navigation center, designed to house people, identify their needs, and move them with care and proper treatment to more permanent housing or treatment centers. It is an emergency regional “triage center” where everyone in need will have a clean, healthy, safe, and secure place and bed.

Sunbreak is a voluntary facility. 

Individuals can reside in a series of designated and protected areas for families, single mothers, seniors, veterans, those with dogs, and so on.

There will be clean toilets, showers, dining halls, medical tents, storage facilities, onsite homeless service providers, mental health counselors, substance abuse specialists and vocational trainers.  

Sunbreak will have private security and a permanent 24/7 police station onsite to maintain a safe and secure environment for residents. Away from the criminals, drug dealers, gang members and sex traffickers who relentlessly prey on the homeless on the streets,  homeless individuals will finally have a secure and safe place to get back on their feet.

According to Martin v. City of Boise (2018), the U.S. Constitution does not allow for prosecuting people for sleeping outdoors if there is no shelter available. With Sunbreak Ranch operational, and shelter available for every person in need, the court’s conditions will be met, thus enabling the return to rule of law regarding public loitering, camping, littering, defecating, urinating, drug use and criminal activity. 

A civilized society must have rule of law, period.

Once proven, Sunbreak can be rapidly replicated across America. The opportunity to save hundreds of thousands of lives, end widespread suffering, and clean up America’s cities, is within our reach.

Another prime location opportunity for Sunbreak Ranch is on the vast land parcels owned by the City of San Diego and County of San Diego in the Otay Mesa / Brown Field area. It is a spectacular open space setting with breathtaking views and fresh air, just 13 miles southeast of downtown San Diego. The area is easily and quickly accessible via highways 905 and 125, with MTS bus and trolley connections already in service.

Decades of band-aide solutions got us into this crisis…and repeating the same certainly won’t get us out of it now. Bottom line, without a “definable plan” and a “dedicated funding stream” we can forget about ending San Diego’s homeless humanitarian crisis. Therefore, a Citizen’s Initiative may be our only way out of this this predicament.
