5Cities Homeless Coalition, an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, is transforming lives in San Luis Obispo County. The Coalition strengthens the community by mobilizing resources, fostering hope, and advocating for those who are homeless or facing homelessness. Our efforts focus on helping the most vulnerable in our community maintain dignity while working toward a new home (or retaining their home). Our work goes beyond the immediate, to ensure clients have the plan, skill sets, education and financial means to be successful and self-sufficient. Since its inception in 2009, 5Cities Homeless Coalition has developed strength as a community leader by working closely with other community agencies and organizations, and has become the "go to" agency for housing and supportive services. We are working to build an engaged community that understands the complexities of homelessness and actively shares the responsibility of creating and implementing solutions to reduce it. 5CHC operates services throughout San Luis Obispo County, with a special focus in South County, connecting our clients to a comprehensive continuum of homelessness prevention, street outreach, employment preparation and placement assistance, individualized case management, supportive services, and housing solutions.
