Trinity Center, a non-residential program serving homeless and working poor adult men and women in Walnut Creek and Central Contra Costa County, was presented with a $10,000 grant by the Rotary Club of Walnut Creek Sunrise on March 7, 2018, at the club’s monthly breakfast. In early April 2018, Trinity Center will move from its current location at 1860 Trinity Ave, Walnut Creek, to a temporary location at 1271 S. California Blvd. Rotary’s grant will be used for relocation expenses and tenant improvements at the temporary location, including, but not limited to, electricity, gas, water, and waste disposal services.
“Rotary is honored to donate to such a worthy cause as Trinity Center,” says Richard Callaway, president of Rotary Club of Walnut Creek Sunrise.
While Trinity Center operates from its temporary location, its current building will be razed completely and rebuilt from the ground up to create St. Paul’s Commons, designed by Pyatok Architects. When the new facility opens in Fall 2019, Trinity Center will occupy the first floor and 44 low-income units will occupy the upper floors.
“Trinity Center is very grateful to have the support of our local Rotary clubs,” says Donna Colombo, executive director of Trinity Center. “We are so blessed for the generous grant from Sunrise Rotary, which comes at a time when we desperately need funds to move into our temporary location and continue to provide services without interruption to our members or disruption to our neighbors.”  
Additional donations are needed to defray moving and operating costs. To make a donation, visit
