Pueblo del Mar Family Recovery Community

Recovery Services

The most important thing I learned at Pueblo was to do one thing and to just keep doing it no matter how insecure I was and no matter how much I thought I couldn't do it. – DeeDee
I am so appreciative for the opportunity to live at Pueblo del Mar. I am grateful for all those who have helped me become a better person and, more importantly, a good mother to my children. – Ericka


Pueblo del Mar, a joint partnership between the Housing Authority of the County of Monterey and Sun Street Centers, provides a safe, affordable, transitional housing program for homeless women with children, men with children, and families with children.  Residents organize themselves in a Social Model-driven council that assists families in developing a sense of pride and community.  In a drug free/alcohol free environment, residents build social networks and support systems designed to foster positive lifestyles.
