As the Volunteer Coordinator it was amazing to see 600 volunteers come together for a common goal. Registry Week allowed friendships to be formed between surveying teams and community members, whether housed or unhoused. It was a beautiful thing to witness and I am pleased to be involved. -Volunteer Coordinator
Thank you to the 600+ people who volunteered for the Point In Time Count and Vulnerability Survey!
Common Ground Santa Barbara County is dedicated to recruiting, training and educating volunteers so they can effectively house the most vulnerable individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Santa Barbara County. We are #readyforzero!
We recruit and train volunteers to help with the Vulnerability Survey, organize year round volunteer outreach teams, provide educational trainings and notify you about volunteer needs in the community. We are a collaborative effort of community members from the non-profit, governmental, business and faith communities of Santa Barbara County striving to end homelessness in our communities.
Common Ground has affected me in so many great ways. Primarily, the team I am a part of with people who care so tremendously. The affects of the team are displayed in the park; people are progressing and being loved consistently. I absolutely believe in what we are doing! -Volunteer
The Common Ground Santa Barbara County volunteer effort is a special project of the Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County.
