On this episode of 'Homeless in San Diego: Real People, Real Stories,' host Greg Anglea, CEO of Interfaith Community Services, is joined by Peter Seidler, Managing Partner of the San Diego Padres. Peter discusses his background in both business and Major League Baseball, as well as how his experience overcoming cancer cultivated a passion for helping our homeless neighbors. Walking the streets of Downtown San Diego during his recovery led Peter to many conversations with those living on our sidewalks, and he shares with Greg how he decided to get involved with his business colleagues to work towards ending homelessness.
