SLO County

The Homeless Foundation of San Luis Obispo County is closing in on the goal of raising $5.4 million for its campaign to build a new homelessness services center at 40 Prado Road. The Central Coast Realtors Charitable Foundation is spearheading a capital campaign dubbed “Agents for Change” and has committed to raising $50,000.

To date, more than $15,000 has been pledged, according to an email from a representative of the foundation.

All funds raised by Agents for Change will count toward the recent anonymous $250,000 matching donation gifted to 40 Prado last month, with about $700,000 left to be raised.
