El Camino Homeless Organization
ECHO is North County’s homeless shelter serving all of the communities in North San Luis Obispo County.
ECHO is a 50-bed transitional shelter helping families and individuals find permanent housing within three months of entering ECHO - with a 70% success rate!
ECHO provides case management services to the homeless, helping them create an action plan, live with new behaviors, find a job, and locate a permanent home.
Other social service agencies depend on ECHO.
ECHO serves up to 80 dinners each evening for anyone who is hungry thanks to our network of dedicated volunteers.
