Jesus calls us to love our neighbor as ourselves. People in our community are hurting: financially, physically, spiritually and emotionally. CPC partners with a number of organizations whose mission it is to alleviate that hurting. By helping to bring hope to those who are too hungry to hear, too tired to speak and too oppressed to find joy, we show Christ’s love to our neighbors.
CPC has adopted Alvin Dunn School, a grade school in San Marcos with a large number of students living near the poverty level. We provide food for kids to take home on the weekends, school supplies at the beginning of the school year, and one-one one tutors.
CPC is proud to be part of the Interfaith Shelter Network, a collaborative effort by local congregations, human services agencies and government entities to provide shelter, services, and resources to homeless San Diegans throughout the region.
CPC joins North County Presbyterians in reaching out to homeless veterans, providing household items and furniture needed to move veterans and their families into subsidized housing with support services.
These two non-profit agencies were formed in 1979. Services provided by CRC in Encinitas include food programs, housing assistance and comprehensive domestic violence services throughout the north county coastal communities. ICS in Escondido provides similar assistance, along with veterans' services to north county inland. CPC supports both agencies through weekly volunteer activity in the CRC food bank and regular donation drives.
Reality Changers was founded in 2001 with a goal of providing youth from disadvantaged backgrounds with the academic support, financial assistance and faith-based leadership training necessary to become first generation college students.
