With the generous support from CA State Department of Community Services and Development, CCEDA is excited to announce the outcomes of two important case studies on successful community facility projects in San Luis Obispo and San Benito Counties. Both projects highlight how passionate local advocates worked with local government, community members, and the business community to develop transformational projects that offer critical, lifesaving shelter and health services to the most underserved individuals and families.
