What Do We Do?

We are creating an interdependent community aligned with a common goal — a thriving, safe and welcoming neighborhood for everyone!

Our current focus is addressing 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.

How Do We Do It?

Shoreline Community Services steps in to fill the gaps by offering connections to existing resources and services. To reduce the barriers that can prevent self-sufficiency, we align our most vulnerable neighbors with resources in the greater community.

Our intentional programming includes:

The Compass Station

A drop-in resource center for unhoused individuals to receive services needed to begin their journey off of the street.

Volunteer Community Outreach

A team of trained volunteers that meet unsheltered individuals where they are, building relationships, trust and support as well as offering connections to the resources and services they need.
