What is the Employee Crisis Fund?

Part of the money raised by the San Diego County Employees' Charitable Organization (CECO) is allocated to a special fund so that employees and retirees of County of San Diego and Superior Court have a place to turn to when they need help.

The Crisis Fund is available to assist County of San Diego and Superior Court employees who are on the active payroll and are experiencing a “one-time financial crisis”. Retirees of the County of San Diego and Superior Court experiencing a “one-time financial crisis” are also eligible to apply. An applicant is expected to have met his/her basic needs, as well as any dependents’ needs, from his/her own resources prior to the current crisis. When the crisis is over, the applicant must again be able to meet his/her basic needs.

The decision to grant funds is based on the following: the applicant’s eligibility, the applicant’s need, and the circumstances underlying the lack of resources.
