Crisis House joined Live Well San Diego as a Recognized Partner on October 17, 2018. Crisis House is a landmark Community Resource Center established in 1970 in El Cajon, California. As the primary Community Resource Center in East County serving the poor and homeless, it is both our objective and challenge to serve every individual who walks through our doors, as well as those who call our offices for crisis intervention and referral services.
The mission of the organization is that "We respond immediately to stop the cycle of domestic violence and homelessness and connect families and individuals to crucial resources that empower them to renew their lives." Crisis House supports men, women, and children to overcome complex and challenging circumstances, including domestic violence, health conditions, and lack of access to food and housing.
Crisis House operates four housing programs for survivors of domestic violence with children and two for families and individuals, including veterans, experiencing homelessness. The housing programs solve homelessness for more than 500 people a year. Crisis House helps people of all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, and ages, including the physically and mentally challenged.
Today, Crisis House provides services to over 5,000 people annually in East County and is committed to advancing the County's vision for a region that is Building Better Health, Living Safe and Thriving.
