San Diego County has the fourth largest population of homeless people in the United States, according to a 2017 report from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The nonprofit Business For Good San Diego created a toolkit to help local business owners address the county's homelessness crisis.
The toolkit contains practical guidelines for interacting with homeless people, as well as ways to get involved in big picture solutions to the crisis.
The nonprofit is holding meetings for business owners to discuss and receive copies of the toolkit. One such meeting is being held for Little Italy business owners Tuesday at 4 p.m. at i.d.e.a. Future community meetings will be posted at the nonprofit's website, businessforgoodsd.com.
Business owners can also contact the organization for a copy of the toolkit.
Karim Bouris, executive director of Business For Good San Diego, joins Midday Edition Tuesday to discuss the goals of the project.
