With its mild climate and high cost of living, Santa Barbara County has a large population of people living on the streets. SBACT coordinates the Alameda Park Collaborative, a partnership between non-profits, government agencies, faith communities, and community members involved with supporting friends without homes through a weekly meal-sharing at Alameda Park. Altogether, the partners in the Collaborative provide meals, showers, healthcare & support services, and friendship to people living on the streets of SB.
The Alameda Park Collaborative (APC) meets quarterly to coordinate programming, streamline resources, and keep partners accountable to the vision of holistic care.
More than a quarter of the nation's homeless population lives in California (roughly 114,000 people)
There were 1,489 individuals identified as homeless in SB County in 2017
Of these, 15% are under 18 years old
