People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) Operations Support
PATH is an interim housing program serving homeless individual men and women. PATH provides access to 100 beds year round for referrals from partner agencies, including: Cottage Health, County Behavioral Wellness, Santa Barbara Police Department, County Probation, County Adult Protective Services, and City of Goleta.
Services include an on-site health clinic, mental healthcare, substance use counseling, housing location, employment and benefits assistance, meals and hygiene facilities. From December to March, PATH also provides emergency shelter on nights when there is a chance of rain or temperatures are expected to drop below 40 degrees. The City grants PATH $202,100 annually to support operations.
