Harold Brown

East County Transitional Living Center’s Harold Brown was recently named the 2019 El Cajon Citizen of the Year.
The CEO is best known for his work with low-income and homeless people securing shelter and counseling.
“Harold is very deserving of this award,” said Joe Mackey, chair, Citizen of the Year Committee, in a press release. “Our culture seems dominated by division, anger, negativity, depression, unkindness, fear, remorse, guilt, rejection, loneliness and hopelessness. When people hit rock bottom and admit they need help, Harold and the East County Transitional Living Center staff are there to outshine the darkness and provide hospitality, healing and an open door of opportunity ECTLC is the hope and transformation choice so people can refocus and dream new dreams for their lives.”
Brown will be honored at a luncheon from noon to 2:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 10 at the Ronald Reagan Community Center, 195 East Douglas Ave., El Cajon. Admission is $25 per person and lunch is included. Tickets are available online at under “Events,” or by calling (619) 440-6161
