In the coming days you may be receiving a payment from the federal government through the CARES Act. For many in our community, these funds will help them stay afloat during the crisis, but if you're able to use it to help others, here are some worthy reasons we'd ask that you consider donating it to 5CHC’s Urgent Need Fund.
5Cities Homeless Coalition offices in Grover Beach remain closed, but staff members are on duty, working from home and in the field. If you live in South County and need help, please see "RESOURCES" below, or you can call 5CHC at 805-574-1638 during normal business hours.
If you are looking to help others, information is included below on how you can donate your extra supplies, or how you can make a cash donation or volunteer.
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
