Homeless in San Diego

$90 of $55,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 31 months


I am Orlando Barahona, a seeker and a shipwrecked soul building a solution to eradicate homelessness in San Diego, California.

This campaign will raise funds to build the first model home in a modular housing colony concept using shipping containers.

Check out my latest OpEd for the San Diego Free Press: San Diego Bureaucracy vs. The Homeless People .

After the closing of my digital marketing business in 2013 and confronting irreconcilable family differences when I landed in San Diego to rebuild my life, I became homeless in 2014.

San Diego is a beautiful city, but I've experienced the rough side of living here.  After two years of participating in housing programs, the experiences inspired a housing and business plan for the City of San Diego: Las Casitas Tiny Homes Village


My goal is to raise funds to open the showroom and model flagship home on a property in San Diego through a synergy with a recovery program to educate a workforce of homeless men and women, to offer an affordable and profitable housing solution for countless San Diegans in search of a better life.

I am an activist against homelessness and homeless outreach volunteer for HISD.LIFE . In my spare time, I'm developing an employment and housing model I wish to present to The Mayor of San Diego, Kevin Faulconer via Dropbox: Las Casitas 2017  . My purpose in life is to help others achieve a human quality of life. I need your help to reach this goal.

Sincerely yours,

How are you? I've been out of the running lately because of a personal crisis that landed me in the hospital. However, I am much better, yet a little disappointed in how little has been achieved when attempting to reach top-level bureaucrats for decision-making on this project.

In the meantime, I continue to write Opinion Editorials to demystify the process by which an ordinary San Diegan can affect change. Point in fact, my next Editorial will be a serious exposé of my travails behind the scenes with the people in power, the ones to whom I shall dedicate a constructive criticism. Oh, the names!

Dear amazing friends and supporters,

How are you? Great things are happening in the development of Las Casitas. One exciting meeting with County officials is scheduled for the month of May. Also, I found an ingenious way to raise funds for the project's operating budget! I'll show you after the next meeting.

Stay positive! I'm not stopping until a solution has been found to homelessness in San Diego. Updates are posted on the official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/homelessnsandiego/ Join the cause!
