Welcome to Fan of the Feather!
Fan of the Feather, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) new transitional center for homeless veterans.
The Mission of Fan of the Feather is to provide a safe and caring environment for homeless veterans in San Diego County. Fan of the Feather is a 501(c)(3) organization which will accomplish this by providing a myriad of services including counseling and referral, substance abuse prevention, work skills development and veteran crisis intervention.
Through our efforts we help homeless veterans who need assistance to restore them to a normal functioning life-be it physically mentally socially, spiritually or vocationally.
FAN OF THE FEATHER was founded as a tribute and a recognition of the dedication, sacrifice and hard work America’s veterans have endured to protect the United States and other countries. Many have asked the origin of our name. The explanation to follow, makes it clear who we are.
The feather represents 3 aspects of our mission, inspiration and devotion.
- The Pigeon is the symbol of the homeless, from the novel, Among Pigeons -The Eagle represents America and it’s and military. Every military branch has an eagle in it’s emblem.
- God-He[God] shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; (Psalms 91:4) This verse reminds us of our faith and what we strive to achieve at The Promised Land, our home available to veterans, who meet our criterion.
- To be a FAN is to be an advocate for the homeless, in particular, homeless veterans, or those at risk.
Become a FAN today, for the love of a veteran.
