Over 4,500 people are classified as living at poverty level in Paso Robles.
These people, mostly children, are food insecure. Many do not know where their next meal is coming from.
Paso Robles presently has no permanent warming station.
Homelessness isn't seasonal, but it is much more difficult to live as a homeless person on cold winter nights, wet, hungry and shivering. As of January 2014, over 800 people, including over 400 children, were homeless, here in Paso Robles, California.
Let's work together to make a difference in Paso Robles.
Paso Cares has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for the hungry and needy members of our community. We want to make sure all are safe during unfortunate times.

We are men and women of Paso Robles Area with the goal of providing for the needs of the homeless population of our community. We are volunteers who together share a vision of providing food, clothing and shelter for our fellow citizens in need. We are leaders willing to stand hand in hand to make sure the needs of each individual are met.

Together we can put an end to homelessness
and provide adequate food and shelter until we do!
The mission of Paso Cares is to undertake activities, in collaboration with other existing
organizations of San Luis Obispo County, that will provide for the immediate and longer
term needs of homeless and needy persons and families. The area of focus will primarily
be in the City of Paso Robles, adjoining jurisdictions, and the North County.
Paso Robles Community, United Methodist, and Covenant Community Churches in Paso
Robles and Life Community Church in Templeton, have all generously offered their
facilities as temporary warming stations during the freezing and rainy nights for a
warming station during the late fall and winter months.
Volunteers are greatly needed to help chaperone. Please call (805) 712-4710
