With your donation, we can continue to help people move forward.

Since 1998 the Chico Community Shelter Partnership has been dedicated to assisting a wide variety of people in their efforts to achieve self-sufficiency and a more stable lifestyle. We operate the Torres Community Shelter, which is a large, year-round emergency shelter for men, women, and families experiencing homelessness. As an organization, we are continually growing, assessing and improving our shelter and related social services. We provide a safe, calm, stable living environment combined with vital case management services. These two factors, along with our committed, professional staff help people create options for themselves and remove barriers so they can end the cycle of homelessness and move on with their lives.

These stores are FoodMaxx and Save Mart locally, and S-mart Foods and Lucky outside of our area. If so, you can support us using a SHARES card and it doesn’t cost you a thing! You just swipe the SHARES card while grocery shopping and Save Mart, FoodMaxx, Lucky or S-mart Foods gives up to 3% of your purchases back to the Shelter! Get your SHARES card now by calling us at 530-891-9048 or e-mailing info@chicoshelter.org. We'll be happy to send you a card.
