Our headquarters has moved! Our home on B St. has served us well, and we grow, so too does the need for more space to serve our neighbors. Built in 1914, Hotel Churchill is a seven-story historic landmark along the San Diego Trolley line. Our new office is on the ground level of the building, with our main entrance on the corner of 9th and C St.

 

As part of our exciting transition, we invited members of the community to drop in to our new space on Friday, December 17th from for refreshments and learn about our inspiring plans for 2022. Thanks to those that attended!
