5Cities Homeless Coalition is transforming the lives of those who are homeless or facing homelessness in San Luis Obispo County.
5Cities Homeless Coalition provides wrap-around services including case management and direct financial assistance – with a special emphasis on housing stability. 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 that clients have the plan, skill sets, and support needed to be successful and self-sufficient. We are proud to share that more than 90% of those we have helped to house (or prevented from eviction) remain housed more than one-year later.
5CHC’s housing support program serves clients throughout San Luis Obispo County who are either homeless or facing homelessness. Intensive case management, including financial literacy coaching, is coupled with direct financial assistance. Direct financial support is provided through a progressive engagement model based on the individual need. As clients work their agreed upon plan, funds are then made available to further their goals for self-sufficiency and housing. During this time we work to ensure on-going income sufficient to maintain housing.
