50 bed homeless shelter for homeless individuals and families. Serves all of San Luis Obispo County.

Office Hours: Mondays through Fridays 10am to 6pm.

Provides case management services to assist residents in securing a job and finding permanent and sustainable housing within three months of entering the shelter program.  While enrolled in the program, residents learn life skills for employment, budgeting, healthier habits and more.  The goal and the result of this practical support is the empowerment of residents to move in a positive direction while assisting them in acquiring the skills and services they need to become self-sustaining, including secure housing.


Individuals and families are directed to resources that will help them find housing within three months of their arrival at ECHO.
