San Luis Obispo County Womenade was founded in 2003 by Sandy Richardson to support individuals and families in need in San Luis Obispo County, California. In 2019, we changed our name to South SLO County Womenade (SSLOCW) to reflect our change of focus to our immediate community.

We cover the following areas: Arroyo Grande (including Huasna Valley), Grover Beach, Nipomo, Oceano, and Pismo Beach (including Shell Beach).
