San Luis Obispo County and the city of San Luis Obispo are working with CAPSLO to expand the 40 Prado safe parking program on July 20.

According to a SLO County press release, this program provides homeless individuals seeking services leading to permanent housing with a safe place to park their vehicle. They also have access to case management and essential services during the pandemic.

“This program offers an added opportunity to work towards economic self-sufficiency, while having a safe location to park,” Wade Horton, county administrative officer, said in the release. “We have a great relationship with CAPSLO and the city and are glad that together we could find a solution to help keep these individuals safe as we deal with the effects of COVID-19.”

Participants will also have access to 40 Prado services including meals, showers, laundry, kennels, access to medical services, and therapy, according to the release.

The County said they first began offering the program in March and concluded at the end of June. This program at CAPSLO will run through Dec. 31, 2020.
