Happy New Year from all of us

Program Spotlight
Coming Soon!
Teens for Healthy Relationships Conference 2023
An invaluable event for young people to...

  • Become more aware about teen dating violence and relationship abuse
  • Learn about dating and healthy relationships 

With One Safe Place, the new Family Justice Center in North County, serving hundreds of victims since its opening last year, the need to educate teens and help break the cycle of abuse has become increasingly important. 

Many teens have already been exposed to violence, either directly by a dating partner or indirectly by witnessing family members being abused. We can’t hide this problem; therefore, we must talk about it.

We believe youth can help us reach more youth. As we hear from them and get them engaged for future events, we hope that they will be able to take the lead to help others. Register for the conference
Capital Campaign
Community Resource Center is the child of this community’s compassion for people who are in need and its capacity to help those same people. There are many different people in this community with many different stories – but we are one community. There are many different paths leading into and out of need – but we have one heart to help.

CRC has been sharing this community’s compassion from its offices on 2nd Street since the mid 80’s and has set course as One Community · One Heart to realize a long-held vision of remodeling its campus so the facilities serve people in need with the same dignity with which they’re welcomed by staff and volunteers.

We invite you to learn more about this vision at
Save the Date!
When: Saturday, April 15
Where: Fairbanks Ranch Country Club

You're invited to our spring CRC fundraiser featuring a silent auction, raffle, informational program and great food and drink.

Registration opens soon!
Our Tea's Auction Committee is already sourcing great items to win

If you have a vacation home to donate for a week, a special food, beverage or services package or other fun activities please email us with the details. Your generosity and imagination is the limit!

Each year, generous individuals and business donate items for the Tea's Auction and Raffle, helping raise critical funds to provide food, housing assistance and shelter to people experiencing hunger, homelessness or domestic violence in our community. 
Discover CRC – 2023 Tours
Sign up today to attend a free tour of CRC’s Food & Nutrition Center, where over 350 households - seniors, unsheltered individuals and struggling families - come each month for healthy food and nutrition services. 

Learn more about our mission, our programs to help our neighbors create pathways to healthy food, stable homes and safe relationships, and our capital campaign to build a new campus. 

If you’ve already visited but it was awhile ago, now is a good time to take another tour. We'll share our strategic priorities for the next few years as well as information on our capital campaign to build a new campus.

And, please bring family, friend and colleagues with you to introduce them to CRC and our mission. Please pre-register as space is limited!

Give Hope by Donating to the CRC Resale Stores
Did you make a resolution to clear out your
closets and garage of unwanted items?

If so, please don’t forget about donating your new or gently-used
items to our resale stores.

Your donations help in so many ways:
  • Proceeds from the sale of donated items are used to support our programs
  • Clients who come to us in need may be given store vouchers so they can select clothing for school or work
  • When we move unsheltered clients into housing, our stores provide household items and furniture to help make their new house into a home

Stores are located in Carlsbad, Encinitas and San Marcos.
Check out the addresses and hours ... we hope to see you soon!
Be sure to follow our Facebook page, too, where we post photos
of items available for purchase.
*We are not able to receive childrens carseats.

Help us share hope
Even though the holiday season has past and we enter into a new year, critical funds are still needed to help our neighbors in need.
