Homeless…Can You Spare a Dime?
Homelessness does not just affect the homeless…our whole community is impacted. It is estimated that more than 4,000 people (including families, adults and children) are homeless in Santa Barbara County. Services, programs and associated costs for managing temporary and chronic homelessness could cost the region as much as $35–$40 million annually. Government agencies, nonprofit organizations, the faith community, and the business sector each play a role in crafting and implementing solutions to the issue of homelessness; yet a solid solution to homelessness eludes us. 

Join a conversation that matters with a group of leaders from these sectors of Santa Barbara as they have a candid discussion about the options before us. Come to listen and share your perspectives, not only on what the real-world challenges are, but how we can make progress as stewards of our own community.
