Since 1966, Metro has served the poor, the disadvantaged, and ethnically diverse populations. Our resume of programs, services, and leadership development span 50 years and has touched the lives of thousands of people in the forgotten neighborhoods and communities of San Diego.
It all started in the basement of a church in downtown San Diego. A group of people sat around a table to discuss a problem – How do they continue to help poor when their church is moving a different location? The solution? They would start Metro — a nonprofit organization — to continue services and outreach to the poor.
Since then, Metro, its own nonprofit 501c3 organization, delivers services to individuals, families and communities through workforce development, educational enhancement, supportive services, and personal and professional development.
