Volunteering is a great way to support the work to end homelessness. Together we can house vulnerable families and end chronic and veteran homelessness in Santa Barbara County.
I love meeting and building relationships with people I would probably not otherwise have done, and continually seeing the diversity and magnitude of homelessness in our community is eye opening. -Volunteer, Common Ground Santa Barbara County
Join a Year Round Common Ground Santa Barbara County Volunteer Team
Common Ground Santa Barbara County is dedicated to recruiting, training and educating volunteers so they can effectively work on teams to house the most vulnerable people in our County.
We want you to have the information, tools and support necessary to help our street friends move into housing and stay housed. As a Common Ground Santa Barbara County volunteer, you engage in outreach and attend a variety of trainings that will help shape your advocacy skills.
Our goal for you is to become a strong voice for our street friends while you help stabilize their lives. We are excited to bring you volunteer trainings based on best practices that emphasize the core Mental Health Service Act principles of empowerment and recovery.
If you’re interested in making a positive difference in the lives of others, contact our Volunteer Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org 451-5604.
