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.

Current Campaign


Be a vital piece in our Community of Care. Please give today to help turn hurt into healing, shadows into shelter, and hunger into hope!

As a Community Resource Center supporter, you complete the picture of hope for our neighbors in need of food, stability, and safety. You make a meaningful difference in the lives of so many, including children escaping domestic violence, vulnerable seniors, and families facing hunger and homelessness.

You help change lives like Oliver's. At just five years old, Oliver witnessed his mom endure physical and emotional abuse. His mom, Mia, bravely broke free and turned to the Community Resource Center for help. At our shelter, Oliver and his baby brother found the safe and loving home that every child deserves. With our caring staff's support, Mia received counseling and help finding a job. Today, Mia and her boys are thriving and hopeful for a brighter future.

Please give by August 30th to help us reach our $50,000 goal to help more families in need!
