As a partner agency of Father Joe’s Villages we share the mission to help our neighbors in need break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. By promoting self-sufficiency through our innovative continuum of care model, our multi-disciplinary programs, and the partnerships that come together in the spirit of our CREED, we teach, learn from, and challenge our neighbors to support themselves and one another.
For more than a decade, Toussaint Academy has served hundreds of teens who have no place else to call home. Located in downtown San Diego, just a few blocks north of the historic Gaslamp Quarter, Toussaint Academy continues to thrive as a haven where kids can learn the skills they need to lead healthy, safe, and fulfilling lives. While they learn the basic life skills necessary to succeed as adults, they are given the chance to explore the dreams that will one day allow them to fly.
Toussaint Academy also provides aftercare services to alumni ages 18-24 to help them maintain stability and success following graduation. Aftercare services include scholarships, housing assistance, job placement, and case management.
