the courtyard area of Freedom Station II in San Diego


When Freedom Station first opened its doors in 2011, it became the first transitional housing residence of its kind in the San Diego region - a place for healing, personal growth and preparation for the
transition to civilian life. The model has been proven, with dozens of Freedom Station residents becoming success stories - embarking on new career pursuits, college or vocational education; finding their passion and purpose; attaining independent living, and starting families of their own.

The Need Remains:
Making Freedom Station II a Reality

Today, San Diego remains home to one of the largest military populations in the world. To meet the need, WFFS has purchased a second property. The new nine-unit transitional housing residence has been named Freedom Station II, a nod to its sister property and the continuing mission to help San Diego’s warriors successfully transition from military service to civilian life.

Located in the South Park neighborhood, Freedom Station II features eight one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottages that are approximately 475 square feet and an additional 1,000 square-foot, two-bedroom unit. Like its predecessor, Freedom Station II was chosen for its proximity to Naval Medical Center San Diego, one of the nation’s largest military hospitals and leading centers for amputee care. While living at Freedom Station II, residents will continue to receive medical treatment while preparing for new challenges in the civilian world.
