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.
