Member Appreciation


Santa Barbara County AmeriCorps Partnership and Northern Santa Barbara County United Way

In Santa Barbara County, on any given night, there are over 1,860 individuals experiencing homelessness. We know it is a problem. It is our privilege to fight to house the people in our county. 

The Santa Barbara County AmeriCorps Partnership members commit to their time to ending homelessness and serving veterans throughout Santa Barbara County.

We support veterans! 


United Way and AmeriCorps

The Best of America

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs that aim to improve lives and fostering civic engagement. AmeriCorps members volunteer to address critical community needs like increasing mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more.
