We are pleased to have completed donated painting to ECHO Homeless Shelter. Our Browder Painting Company, Inc. crew was proud to be able to paint the interior and exterior of 4 new storage sheds donated to ECHO.

They have a 50-bed transitional shelter helping families and individuals find permanent housing within three months of entering. They provide case management services to the homeless, helping them create an action plan, live with new behaviors, find a job, and locate a permanent home.

More about ECHO Homeless Shelter:
ECHO is San Luis Obispo County's homeless shelter serving all of the communities in the North County areas. We are a 50-bed transitional shelter helping families and individuals find permanent housing within three months of entering. We provide case management services to the homeless, helping them create an action plan, live with new behaviors, find a job, and locate a permanent home. In addition, a group serves up to 80 dinners each evening for anyone who is hungry thanks to our network of dedicated volunteers.
Who are the homeless?
About 60% of our beds are occupied by children and their parents. In the month of December 2016 alone, 22 children were sheltered with us. Many are the working poor who are unable to find affordable housing. Many are the elderly and/or veterans. Many are families with children. Many struggle with physical and mental illness.
Meeting Community Needs
Since 2001, we have helped homeless individuals and families transform their lives as they work to establish and sustain permanent housing. With generous donations from the community, we renovated the shelter in 2015 and increased capacity from 31 to 50 beds.
Who supports ECHO?
The entire community! More than 73% of our income comes from donations! It takes a community-wide partnership to maintain and operate a shelter, as well as provide critical case management services. We need your support to continue the services that enable homeless men, women and families to get back home!
We can't thank Browder Painting enough. More than 75% of our funds are donated, plus the countless hours by volunteers and daily meals for up to 80 people every evening. We could not serve those in need the way we are able without people and businesses like you.
