Outreach

For years, we have been reaching out to people here in SLO without housing - including many longtime local residents - who have fallen into the gap in services for various reasons. They are either ineligible for or under-served by homeless services. Some don’t have the wherewithal to participate, or they lack the required income necessary to obtain housing. Some people simply cannot live in close proximity to others in a shelter setting due to their illnesses and issues. They need a hand up.

We have provided sleeping bags, clothing, food and water, and have helped house 20+ people through our outreach services. In the past, we’ve also been able to help those who are sick get into motel rooms.

We ensure people know aboutall homeless services available to them, and urge them to utilize these services.


We anxiously await the day when we help build their own tiny homes!

Type your paragraph here.


The cabins will be built by the villagers with 

volunteers using sustainable building methods. They are structurally sound, well insulated, and

a safe, warm and dry place to sleep.

Our model cabin demonstrates how well built and inexpensive these tiny homes are, built on chassis in order to be moveable. They are considered "specially-constructed mobile homes" by the DMV and are licensed as a “CA Permanent Trailer.”

Ordering a copy of Growing Home is one way to learn more about the realities of homelessness, while also helping to support the creation of

Hope's Village.     To learn more visit:  www.growing-home.org

Upcoming Project: Hope’s Village Organic Garden

Dori Stone (U.C. graduate in International Agriculture) will help plan Hope’s Village's organic vegetable & flower garden which will provide an opportunity for villagers to develop valuable job skills while experiencing the healing effects of working with plants. The garden will contribute to the village’s self-sufficiency and also provide a source of fresh local produce for the broader SLO County community.

Growing Home

Hope’s Village’s board secretary Dori Stone is the author of a heartwarming story about a young girl who is homeless, her mother, and a community garden set in a fictional town inspired by SLO County. Dori contributes part of the proceeds from book sales to Hope’s Village!

For the past few years, we have had a Cal Trans “Adopt-A-Highway” site on Highway 58  (off  US 101 heading into Santa Margarita, CA) where we pick up trash on a regular basis.


Just another way we contribute to the well-being of our community!
