The Homeless Services Center is dedicated to the coordinated provision of services for homeless persons. The goal of the Homeless Services Center is to provide both emercency and transitional services to homeless individuals and families that will enable our clients to achieve self sufficiency. Our programs include the Rebele Family Shelter, the Paul Lee Loft, the Page Smith Community House and the Day Resource Center.
Established in 1986, the Homeless Services Center was established by a group of Santa Cruz citizens concerned about the plight of the homeless and poor in our community. For a more in-depth examination of the circumstances under which the HSC was founded, consider reading Paul Lee's book, the Quality of Mercy.
