The Story of ECTLC

The story began over 10 years ago as a group of businessmen and a small church began to transform not only an old motel but thousands of homeless men, women, and children. Along with a few larger churches in the county, Shadow Mountain Church, the Southern Baptist Association and the City of El Cajon all came together to develop one of the most successful transitional living centers in the country. The story continues as you now consider becoming a part of providing an additional 40 rooms for homeless families. Today in San Diego County hundreds of families are sleeping in their cars and are waiting for a room to open so that they too would experience the transformational change that is offered here at ECTLC. Join us and become a part of the story by donating your time, talent, and or treasure to this great work that is happening right here in San Diego.

ECTLC plans to expand its outreach by building two dormitory-style buildings that will house over a hundred single men and woman and remodeling 40 of its existing rooms opening the door for over 50 new families and over 120 children. No child in the US should have to sleep in a car or under an overpass. With your help, we can provide these families guidance back into a safe and healthy living condition. Would you help us today? With your donation no matter how large or small, together we can achieve these goals.

Our deepest gratitude to our generous corporate sponsor.
