Home for Good Santa Barbara County

AmeriCorps Serving Here!

 

Home For Good Santa Barbara County supports a Coordinated Entry System, a no-wrong door, countywide system that engages and connects individuals and families experiencing homelessness to the optimal resources for their needs. We believe that everyone deserves a safe place to call home for good.

We are working to maintain Home For Good Santa Barbara County Coordinated Entry and Coordinated Outreach operations. Due to the COVID-19 "Coronavirus" some of our Regional Entry Point locations will be closed due to the safety protocols of our partner agencies. Outreach can still be contacted via our hotline: 1-805-450-3558. Social services are considered essential services under the statewide, mandatory Stay At Home Order, all interim housing, shelter, outreach, rapid re-housing, and permanent supportive housing programs are considered essential and should continue to operate.
