Helping Neighbors in Need      

Uptown Community Service Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization in the North Park neighborhood of San Diego.  It is run by dedicated volunteers and provides services to over 2,000 homeless and very-low income persons each year.  We help our neighbors in need by providing:
  • Information and referrals
  • Mailbox & Message Center
  • A Computer Center with internet access and use of fax and telephones
  • Food distribution twice a week
  • Clothing & Hygiene Supplies
We are a non-profit organization of caring people helping our neighbors in need.  We are able to provide these vital services because of your kind donations and our dedicated volunteers.  We are changing lives, and you can too!
Our homeless and low-income neighbors are part of our community and we are committed to assisting them with services in a respectful manner.  With a homeless population of over 8,000 and more than 15% of residents living below the poverty level, helping our neighbors in need is vital.

"It is not just the food, clothing and services that make a difference, but the volunteers themselves. They are caring and compassionate, and it's a comfortable environment where everyone is welcome."   Robert, Uptown Community Service Center Client
