Jeff Shaffer met with two people experiencing homelessness while he was doing outreach with Madeline from Behavioral Wellness on Tuesday, January 29th.
Jeff and Madeline were doing sock outreach, and they were just working to get to know everyone on State. At Home for Good Santa Barbara County, one of our goals is to personally get to know the community that we are helping. We don't believe that we can create positive change if we are offering help without actually knowing the problems and the people experiencing them.
Thursday was an eventful day for me in Lompoc, I had the opportunity to join forces with an AmeriCorps member, Jasmine, whom serves through the Good Samaritan Shelter here in Lompoc.
