Thank you HomeAid!!

Back-to-School Shopping Spree

Thank you to the East County Posse who provided funding for a back-to-school clothing shopping spree for the kids living at ECTLC. The kids were given gift cards to shop at Walmart in El Cajon. This is the 7th year the East County Posse has helped the families purchase much-needed clothing for the upcoming school year.

Thank you East County Posse!!

Thank you all for your generosity!! We are so very grateful!!

Thank you to the Lighthouse Cares Foundation for providing work boots to our men who are busy with vegetation management, chipping, defensible space and other projects within our work therapy program. These men are working hard as they transform their lives from homelessness to productive, self sufficient citizens. 


Thank you so much Lighthouse Cares Foundation!!

Thank you Jerry Navarra, and Jeromes Furniture

Blanket Drive

When it's cold outside, the homeless who are exposed to the harsh elements while living on the street, often suffer the most. As they enter into ECTLC to begin their life transformation, most are without linens and blankets.


ECTLC is in constant need of linens and blankets....

Would you consider donating a warm blanket and/or linens? (twin and queen size)


We are collecting new blankets/linens (twin and queen size) for the +400 adults AND +100 children living at ECTLC.


Please drop by your donation to the ECTLC office, and they will provide you with a donation receipt.  Thank you for providing the gift of warmth and comfort to those who need it most.









Thank you to the

San Diego County Federation

of Republican Women

who hosted a county wide backpack/school supply drive to provide the ECTLC  kids with items they need for back-to-school. The donation is a part of the Federated Womens "Caring for America" program.  They delivered 140 backpacks, plus cake and punch, to the kids living at ECTLC

We are so grateful, thank you!!!

A very special thank you to Jerry Navarra , owner of Jeromes Furniture, for providing 60 new mattresses to families living at ECTLC. We all know how important a good night sleep is. Now these ECTLC families will sleep well as they transform their lives.
