Helping the homeless in SLO County Since 1997
NEW HOMELESS SERVICES CENTER
The new homeless services center at 40Prado is now open. Our new center combines the services previously provided at the Maxine Lewis Memorial Shelter and the Prado Day Center.
40Prado provides a cost-effective, central location and sober environment for homeless families and individuals as they embark on the path to self-sufficiency. 40Prado provides the basic essentials of food, shelter and personal care: counseling, job training , tutoring and healthcare for medically fragile individuals: veterans services and assistance with finding permanent housing. In short, 40Prado provides not just shelter, but a means to an end.
It can be a helpless feeling to be homeless, yet thousands find themselves in this predicament annually in San Luis Obispo County. Fortunately, our compassionate community has found an effective way to provide services to assist the homeless. Each day 90 to 100 homeless men, women and children come to 40Prado.
Will you help us to improve the lives of San Luis Obispo County individuals, families, and children?
