Harnessing the Power of
to impact our neighborhood's most urgent social challenges
What Do We Do?
We seek to create an interdependent community aligned with a common goal — a thriving, safe and welcoming neighborhood for everyone!
Our current focus is to address the unmet needs of unsheltered individuals and families in the Central Beach Area of San Diego – making sure the most vulnerable are cared for with compassion and equity through the efforts of Community Members and Community Partners.
This requires us to meet each neighbor face to face, listen deeply, suspend all judgment, offer positive affirming support, along with the real world expertise that it takes to navigate the convoluted system of assistance that is available.

Where Do We Do It?
The Compass Station opened in May 2022. A natural expansion of outreach programs, meal services and shower/laundry services that have previously been part of SCS programming is now a brick-and-mortar drop-in center in the Pacific Beach neighborhood of San Diego.
The Compass Station is a place where those experiencing homelessness can do laundry, charge a device and use the computers. But the main purpose is to connect people to service and resource providers that can help as they journey off of the street.
