Our 11th annual “Empty Bowls Luncheon” is recreating last year's success and staying mobile! Visit any of 3 pickup parties to pick up (and pick out) bowls handcrafted by local artisans. In an effort to continue supporting local businesses, when you pick up your bowl, you will receive a coupon good for a bowl of soup from a participating restaurant!
5Cities Homeless Coalition in partnership with People's Self-Help Housing has introduced a concept to develop the current Hillside Church location, at 1935 Newport Ave. in Grover Beach. Here is an FAQ about the project.

Every year, more than 250 volunteers help 5Cities Homeless Coalition transform the lives of families and individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in southern SLO County.
Some 100 of those volunteers provide thousands of hours of service to the Coalitions’ Winter Warming Center, which so far during the 2018-19 season has been open more than 50 nights. Center staff and volunteers have provided more than 1,200 shelter nights and 2,500 meals to more than 130 different individuals.
The Coalition’s mission to help those who are homeless or facing homelessness incorporates three pillars: resources, support and hope. Each is key to improving the personal well-being of our clients as well as strengthening our broader community.Donate Now
