Join a Year round Common Ground Santa Barbara County Homeless Advocacy Project Volunteer Team
The Common Ground Santa Barbara County Homeless Advocacy Project 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 Jessielee: firstname.lastname@example.org 451-5604.
