El Camino Homeless Organization
El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) provides meal, shelter and support services to the homeless and hungry of northern San Luis Obispo County. As a nonprofit, we are volunteer-based and run by a coalition of churches, service organizations and individuals. If people have a passion for any service to the needy in this area, ECHO has a place for them here. Our family atmosphere and selfless dedication of volunteers has been a refuge for many in their times of need.
ECHO operates 365 days of the year providing a warm meal and a place to sleep for those who need a helping hand. ECHO’s vision is to provide access to services that address the root causes of homelessness and to help the homeless find a level of self-sufficiency that is appropriate to each individual.
if you would like to learn more about staying at ECHO, volunteer opportunities, or donating to the shelter, please call 805 462-3663 (FOOD). A volunteer will be at this phone number from 4:30 - 6:00. The best time to call and speak to a volunteer is between 4:30 - 4:45 since we begin serving dinner at 5:00. However, you may leave a message anytime.
The shelter managers are Devra Akin and Mark Peters.
