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.
