Because of the housing shortage in San Diego, landlords can have their pick of renters. But real estate developer and landlord Matt Philbin has chosen to rent to people who often get passed by.
More than half of his current tenants have struggled with homelessness in the recent past, Philbin said.
Father Joe’s Villages, San Diego's largest homeless services provider, presented Philbin with its Impact Award at an event Thursday to honor landlords who help individuals and families overcome homelessness.
As part of our First Person series, Philbin explains how he found a career that has become his mission.
