The Dambly Fund for Homeless Children
Helping Homeless Children In San Luis Obispo County
For many years, Burke Dambly wanted to provide help for homeless families. One Christmas, unable to find a deserving family on his own, he reached out to local pastor Rev. Curt Miner in San Luis Obispo who directed him to Homeless Services.

Mr. Dambly was shocked when, of the 35 homeless children who submitted wishes, 27 of them asked for shoes! The others asked for educational materials, including one third-grader who asked for a math book. Burke could not let these children go without. All 35 wishes were granted and from this, the Dambly Fund was established.

The Goal of The Fund

The Dambly Fund exists solely to provide homeless children in San Luis Obispo County with basic living and educational necessities. Providing these items allows these children to fit into society without the pressures and stigmas of homelessness. It is the hope of the Fund that the children who receive assistance will grow to become stable, compassionate members of our community.

"Thirty five homeless children submitted wishes, and 27 of them asked for shoes!  This shows a need at a very basic level. "
