PRC Programs and Services include:


Groceries are a major expense. If you need food or could use the $ savings to help pay for other expenses, you will not be turned away. We have a variety of grocery programs to choose from to meet your needs.

PRC Pantry – Make an appointment to shop privately in our pantry. If it’s an emergency, we’ll get you in ASAP! We carry canned goods and other nonperishable items, as well as dairy, frozen meat, fruit, vegetables, and other perishable items, while supplies last.

Grocery Delivery – Starting in the Fall, we will be offering a grocery delivery program. Stay tuned for details.


If you are a Pacifica resident behind on your rent, mortgage, or utility bills, we will work with you to help find programs to help pay your rent or mortgage, make a security deposit, or pay utility bills that have fallen behind.

Rent or Mortgage Assistance – We may be able to provide a one-time rental or mortgage grant to help you stay in your home (average grants are $2,000). If you need to move to a new home, even outside Pacifica, we may be able to help pay security deposits.

Utility Payment Assistance – If you are past due on your utility bills, PRC can help find programs to help with a one-time payment of your bills. This includes PG&E, garbage/Recology, and water bills.


If you are unhoused, living in a vehicle, or couch surfing, please reach out to us. PRC is the point of entry for homeless services in Pacifica and we also offer a variety of other programs and services. We want to help you become and stay housed, have groceries and a hot meal, and be prepared for job interviews and other appointments!

Shelter and Other Housing – Connect with PRC to explore your housing options, access shelter, and be considered for a housing voucher to help pay your rent. We work with agencies to find out what is available and coordinate entry into housing programs, which are provided based on priority and an assessment of your needs.

Pacifica Safe Parking Program (PSPP) – PSPP began on June 29th 2022. This program provides a permit for a period of 29 days to any unhoused person living in an eligible oversized vehicle (OSV). Permits are only assigned for the 13 dedicated PSPP spots and are required to be renewed on the day of expiration. The goal of PSPP is to develop a plan and support participants towards returning to permanent housing.

Groceries & Hot Meals – You don’t have to ever go hungry! At PRC we always have food available. While you’re here, get a cup of coffee or use our microwave for a hot meal. We know you don’t always have a place to store food, so meet with one of our case managers to be added to our walk-in pantry list and find out about other services for which you qualify.

Shower at PRC – We have a private, fully stocked shower onsite at our office. Call to schedule a time to use the shower to prepare for work, job interviews, your housing search, as well as medical and other appointments.

Street Medicine – Active PRC clients can be referred to doctors and psychiatrists, if needed. You can meet with these specialists onsite in our office.
