who and what we are

We are an organization formed in June 2012 with volunteers from throughout the County of San Luis Obispo. We come from church groups, are county employees, mental health professionals, lawyers, accountants and many more.  Paso Cares is a California non-profit public benefit corporation which is tax-exempt under federal code section 501 (c) (3).  Our sole funding is from donations and grants. Paso Cares is a standing board of elected members, who all volunteer countless hours to achieve our mission. 

Together we can put an end to homelessness

and provide adequate food and shelter until we do!
