The Cuyamaca Cares office is proud of the many partnerships we have created with community organizations who specialize in housing assistance. Because Cuyamaca doesn't have on-campus housing, we must rely on our partnerships to connect you with the services that you need. Services available in the community include, but are not limited to, emergency rental assistance, low-income housing navigation, rapid-rehousing for those experiencing homelessness, and emergency shelter for those not currently sleeping in a space suitable for human habitation (i.e. car or street).
In order to help us get you to the services that are the best fit for you, please complete the intake form using the link below. Your responses are guaranteed confidentiality and will only be reviewed by Cuyamaca Cares staff unless consent is provided by you. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at email@example.com
