We are The 5Cities Homeless Coalition and We’re Here to Lend a Helping Hand. At 5CHC, we work hard to service families and individuals by providing the resources, support, and hope that they need to become self-sufficient, productive community members. Planning how best to address the needs of the homeless in South San Luis Obispo County today involves many caring citizens and community leaders, and we are taking a collaborative approach to meet the challenge.

Ending homelessness involves making sure people are healthy, well-nourished, adequately prepared to find jobs, and that they have the opportunity to access available housing. Below is an updated compilation of resources available in southern San Luis Obispo County.
