Join us for our Eleventh Annual Empty Bowls! Empty Bowls benefits families who are homeless or are facing homelessness. Following the tremendous success of last year's "Empty Bowls Goes Mobile," 5Cities Homeless Coalition is proud to celebrate a decade of helping local families.


5Cities Homeless Coalition (5CHC), in partnership with the County of San Luis Obispo (SLO) and City of Grover Beach, will soon open a temporary emergency housing shelter in Grover Beach to help those experiencing homelessness in South County achieve the ultimate goal of permanent housing. There are currently no emergency housing facilities available in South County, making this much-needed resource extremely valuable to both those in need and their communities.

The shelter is currently under construction, and is anticipated to open by early October, 2022!


The 2022 Hope for the Homeless Golf Tournament raised nearly $16,500 for 5Cities Homeless Coalition programs and services in SLO County.
