The Warming Center at Prado Day Center is scheduled to be open Monday 1/9, Tuesday 1/10, and Wednesday 1/11, with future dates dependant on weather conditions.

The Warming Center opens when the likelihood of rain overnight exceeds 50% or if the temperatures are predicted to drop below 35 degrees. Since November 1, 2016, weather conditions have initiated the opening of the Prado Warming Center for a total of 16 nights, and we will be open a minimum of three additional nights during the next week. In contrast, the Warming Center was open a total of 18 nights during the 2015-16 winter/rainy season.

While we are always grateful to receive much-needed rain and for being able to provide a warm, dry place for people to stay, opening the Warming Center requires the mobilization of staff and volunteers, additional meals, and making sure we have new sleeping bags and other needed supplies. We are thankful to everyone who has assisted us in providing this resource for those in our community with nowhere else to stay during inclement weather.

If you would like to assist with meals or volunteering during this weekend's Warming Center, please visit www.SignUpGenius.com/go/30E0A4BA8AA29A3FE3-prado2. Additionally, there is an on-going need for the following supplies, which can be dropped off at 43 Prado Road, San Luis Obispo:

  • Rain gear/ponchos/umbrellas
  • New socks and warm gloves
  • Large backpacks and sleeping bags Noodle/Cup of Noodles
  • Breakfast Bars Coffee, tea, creamer, sugar
  • Disposable plates, bowls, cups, and utensils
  • Large trash bags

Client check-in begins at 4:45 pm at 43 Prado Road. Those needing shelter may arrive at any time during the evening; however, once someone leaves, they may not return that night. Pets ARE allowed. Smoking is allowed in the designating smoking area. Prado is a sobriety-based facility. Overnight guests will be provided a safe dry place to sleep and a hot meal. While the Warming Center closes at 8am, clients may access regular Prado Day Center services beginning at 8:30am. The Warming Center may be activated on future dates, depending on weather conditions. For up to date information about warming center nights of operation, please call the CAPSLO Warming Center Hotline: 805-549-6858.


Help a Veteran Find a Home in time for the Holidays!



A day in the Life of CAPSLO

What is Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County or CAPSLO?

CAPSLO is “helping people and changing lives.” CAPSLO is a Head Start, helping the homeless, and improving the health of thousands of teens and adults. CAPSLO is helping eligible households save energy and money while staying warm in the winter and cool in the summer. CAPSLO is making sure our veterans have a safe place to call home. CAPSLO is assisting low-income seniors to age in place with increased accessibility at home and affordable, quality adult day care. CAPSLO is helping families access quality child care, early educational opportunities, and resources that help people become the best parents they can be!

While there is no way to tell the entire story in 5 minutes or less, this glimpse into “A Day in the Life” captures a variety of ways in which CAPSLO programs help people 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
