The man whose name and face is synonymous with efforts to help the homeless in San Diego, Father Joe Carroll, stepped down from day to day operations this year.
The new president of Father Joe's villages is Sister Patricia Cruise, of the Sister of Charity order. Sister Tricia takes the helm at a time when the number of homeless in San Diego has risen, and the economy is making giving hard for many people.
