Help out in this year’s upcoming Countywide Homeless Vulnerability Survey. In 2011 Santa Barbara County had the most volunteers of any community nationwide. This survey will ensure that those who are at the highest risk will receive valuable life-saving resources and services, moving them into housing and reducing their dependency on expensive emergency services.
No experience is needed. Volunteers for the Jan. 22 & 23 survey dates must attend one of the countywide training events to be held on:
(Training location for Goleta, Isla Vista, and Carpinteria)
Training Day, Saturday, Jan 19, 1pm-4pm:
Earl Warren Showgrounds, Warren Hall, 3400 Calle Real, Santa Barbara, 93105
Volunteers are also needed to staff the survey outposts on Jan. 22 & 23, including set-up/take-down, directing volunteers and computer support for photo uploads. Volunteers also needed before Jan. 17th to prepare training packets.
If you belong to a club or organization: Common Ground Santa Barbara can make a presentation about volunteering to your members.
