Let’s build something together

San Luis Obispo is a dynamic community, with a diverse population and growing needs. Throughout the past challenging year, we have supported nonprofits to help feed those in need, and provided personal protection equipment for first responders, migrant workers, childcare providers and others. We believe to achieve racial equality in the workforce, we must first reduce the financial barriers to higher education. We're working with nonprofits in our area to provide grants and funding for people of color to continue their education and move on to successful careers. In particular, we’re supporting families transitioning back into society after incarceration through financial-planning and job training in the culinary arts, helping them gain the confidence to succeed. And we're focused on working with private, public and nonprofit partners here to attract other businesses to SLO to increase economic opportunity and mobility for all of our neighbors.

On the path to a permanent home

To meet the acute housing needs of San Luis Obispo county’s Hispanic-Latino community, in 2020 El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) launched En Camino a Mi Casa. Employing a team of multicultural, bilingual staff members, the program provides culturally sensitive services in Spanish.

California Edu-Dreaming

Along California’s Central Coast, the nonprofit People’s Self-Help Housing (PSHH) helps farmworkers, low-income families, seniors, veterans and others find a home. The organization’s mission also extends to an array of programs designed to improve the lives of the people who live in those homes. This includes offering K-12 educational programs at 10 on-site learning centers, as well as tackling a longstanding problem in the largely Hispanic-Latino community it serves: the college achievement gap —especially among women.

To inspire more Latina high school students to aim for college, PSHH has launched CELEBRE (College Enrollment for Latinas Entering Bright Rewarding Educations), a program that assists students with college selection, applications, and financing, and then supports them with mentors and check-ins to guide them along the way.

Equal access to education

Equal access to education is critical to the health of our communities and our economy. The coronavirus and its impact on society have shone an even brighter light on many long-standing economic and racial inequalities across the country. Including at America's schools. These school systems are working to end inequality in education and create opportunity for their students after graduation.
