Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The 5Cities Homeless Coalition is working to strengthen the south San Luis Obispo County community by mobilizing resources, support, and hope for the homeless and those facing poverty.
The 5Cities Homeless Coalition is bringing resources, support and hope together to help solve the challenges of homelessness faced by our South County neighbors. The Coalition is working with service providing organizations, the faith community, service groups and community leaders to assess current services, and opportunities for collaboration to provide for immediate needs (not currently being met) that lead toward self-sufficiency.
The homeless population in South County is a diverse group of individuals that have many obstacles to overcome. 5Cities Homeless Coalition's goal is to address these obstacles as a means to end homelessness. Programs that assist these families and individuals in South County are offered by a variety of service providers in a wide geographic area.
Currently a loose network of service providers exists in the South County. Communicating and coordinating services through this network requires time and energy, but a role the Coalition is actively working to fill. The backbone of the 5Cities Homeless Coalition is our strength in channeling community resources, volunteers, and donor assets to meet the needs of the homeless population through existing and new programs.
In collaboration with our community partners, 5 Cities Homeless Coalition's vision is to build a Community Services Center in south San Luis Obispo County that will offer a full range of resources to empower low income and homeless families, children and individuals to build self-esteem through acquiring the education, job training, food and medical services they need to become self-sufficient and productive community members.
