Homelessness Santa Barbara County 101

Homelessness is a crisis both locally and throughout the country. Many factors, including misinformation, myths and 'good intentions' contribute to this problem.
This class will provide information and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about homelessness, including: What is homelessness? What are the key factors that lead to homelessness and what is the current state of homelessness in Santa Barbara County? Who is homeless in Santa Barbara County?  How can homelessness be solved? 
By the end of this class, you will become familiar with many of the interventions and terms associated with homelessness. More importantly, you will gain a much better understanding of the homeless system here in Santa Barbara County, including the most up-to-date statistics and best practices for solving homelessness in our community.
Join us to break down the myths and discover how you can play a key role in changing our county’s history as well as the lives of our neighbors experiencing homelessness.
