Executive Summary

In January 2008, cities, agencies and groups throughout San Luis Obispo County began an important journey aimed at improving the County’s approach to homelessness.  The need for change was broadly recognized as homelessness in the county continued to grow. More individuals and families were losing their housing; community members were increasingly frustrated by the effects of homelessness in their neighborhoods, city centers and public parks; homeless programs were struggling to meet the growing need with dwindling resources and local leaders were searching for solutions that were both effective and affordable.

Path to Home – San Luis Obispo Countywide 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness

The purpose of San Luis Obispo County Homeless Services Oversight Council (HSOC) is to ensure that everyone has access to appropriate and affordable housing and to services they need to sustain it.  HSOC identifies the following priorities to end homelessness:

  1. Facilitate access to affordable housing
  2. Stop homelessness before it starts through prevention and effective intervention
  3. End and prevent homelessness through integrated, comprehensive and responsive support services
  4. Coordinate a solid administrative & financial structure to support an effective implementation plan
