Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
Welcome to ECHO
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. We operate 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.
