Giving to CRC

Those who come to CRC are experiencing what could possibly be one of their worst days. Seeking food to feed their hungry children, shelter so they are no longer homeless and safety from domestic violence.

Help turn that worst day into the start of a future filled with hope and possibility.
There are many ways in which you can support CRC!

You can also contact us to make a donation by phone at 760-230-6307 or by mail to
Community Resource Center, 650 2nd Street, Encinitas, CA 92024.
