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.
Thank you Barnett Cox & Associates for producing this video!

This month is SLOcals' month at Woodstock's Pizza San Luis Obispo. Woodstocks' is showing their support and appreciation for local businesses and organizations by hosting a series of one night fundraisers! CAPSLO Youth Programs was chosen as the beneficiary on Wednesday, September 28. This is a chance to raise money for CAPSLO's Health and Prevention Youth Programs Division to show your appreciation and support for the impact they make for the community and for the health and wellness of local youth!
The fundraiser will be taking place from 5pm-8:00pm on Wednesday, September 28th. Print out the embedded flier and then present it with your order to dine in or pickup. Up to 25% of sales made from that time will be donated to CAPSLO Youth Programs.
Tickets are now on sale for an Afternoon of Epicurean Delights (AED), the Central Coast event that keeps people coming back year after year. We will be celebrating the 29th year of this spectacular event on Sunday, June 5th. The historic Chapman House by the Sea in Shell Beach will open its gates and welcome guests from 11:30 to 3:30.
Please join us for a day filled with music, lovely gardens, panoramic ocean views and renowned food and beverages.
Get your tickets early, as we sold out last year. We don‛t want you to find yourself standing outside the gate looking in at the exquisite Estate grounds and wishing that you were inside.
Tickets are $125.00 and may be purchased online through Brown Paper Tickets, or directly from the Community Action Partnership Health & Prevention Division office: phone (805) 544-2498. Complimentary shuttles start at 11:00 am from Shell Beach Elementary School and Pismo Beach City Hall.
For those not living on the Central Coast, an Afternoon of Epicurean Delights has become the best excuse for a get-away weekend.
