Guest Testimonial

"I am grateful to CCRC and the time that I was allowed there. If it were not for the program, I would have been out on the streets where my amputation would have gotten infected. They helped me at a time when I had no one."

About Central Coast Respite Center

The Central Coast Respite Center provides homeless adults with a bed to allow them time to rest, recuperate, and continue with self-care following their stay at local hospitals. As a guest in our respite care program, participants receive three meals a day and are given transportation to/from medical appointments and their pharmacy to obtain medications. They also receive case management support and are linked to social services with the goal of improving their health and placing them into stable housing.


Located in the City of Seaside, the Center opened in July 2016 and is operated in partnership with the three major hospitals in Monterey County - Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP), Natividad Medical Center (NMC), and Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System (SVMHS). The shelter is staffed twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and is a non-medical facility.

The Central Coast Respite Center is operated and managed by Community Homeless Solutions, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.
