We want to hear from you! Please join us at 5:30pm on Thursday, April 27 at the SLO County Public Library Community Room where members of the CAPSLO Board of Directors and staff will be taking testimony from the community.

Teen Monologues Community Performance - 15th Annual

Teen Monologues is a powerful teen theater outreach project offering a bold message of understanding, encouragement and hope. Written and produced by local San Luis Obispo County youth, the play presents a realistic and honest portrayal of navigating sexuality and the challenges of sexual decision making. We encourage youth and adults alike to enjoy this performance.


There are two show times on the evening of April 27th, 6PM and 8PM. Preceding the event we will be hosting a dessert reception with live music.


Spring Garden Tour - Benefitting CAPSLO Adult Day Services

Join us from 11:00am to 4:00pm on Sunday, May 7 for a spring tour of some of North County's most unique gardens.

A map will be emailed to all who purchase tickets. Bring your tickets to any of the stops along the tour to receive your entry wristband.

Proceeds from the tour will benefit Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County's Adult Day Center in Paso Robles. The Adult Day Center provides a social model day care in a home-like environment for seniors with Alzheimer's and other forms of memory loss. As the county's only non-profit adult day care provider, the Adult Day Center gives family caregivers peace of mind knowing that their loved one is in a safe and fun environment while they work, run errands, or have some needed respite. The Adult Day Centers services are provided on an affordable sliding scale. Fundraisers and donations allow the program to provide services to those families in greatest financial need.
