A path to stability with the Community Resouce Center

Community Resource Center (CRC) works to help those in need create paths to healthy food, stable homes and safe relationships. Programs include a domestic violence emergency shelter, hotline and prevention/education outreach; a Therapeutic Children’s Center; professional counseling; legal advocacy; food and nutrition distribution center; homelessness prevention and rental and housing assistance.

Last year, CRC, which had focused its work near its Encinitas headquarters, expanded services to Oceanside. Recent services include:

  • Aiding families in repaying back rent, keeping them in their homes and preventing homelessness.
  • Providing emergency motel vouchers for clients on low, fixed incomes, as they await admittance to permanent, Section 8 housing programs.
  • Working with property owners to dispel negative stereotypes of those using Section 8 housing subsidies. CRC staff explain that their clients have supportive services to help them succeed and that Section 8 vouchers are guaranteed payments from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

If you or someone you know has rental property and you’d like to help CRC clients move into permanent housing, please contact Integrative Services at intake@crcncc.org or call (760) 753-8300.

CRC’s homelessness prevention programs provide assistance to help you remain in your home. If you or someone you know needs assistance, please contact Integrative Services at intake@crcncc.org or call (760) 753-8300.
