Office Building

We know it is a lot to ask the universe, but if you don't ask ...

Do you or someone you know have between 1,500 and 2,500 square feet of office space sitting empty?

Currently, our headquarters and administrative office is located in our confidential transitional housing apartment complex in Santa Barbara. Not only is this confidential location far from ideal, we are also using two converted apartments that could be used to house clients instead of our offices. You could make an incredible difference to our agency and save us what we anticipate in future years will cost at least $50,000 per year.

Storage Space

We spend over $300 per month renting a storage space in Santa Barbara and Santa Maria. Do you have storage you would like to donate?

Telephone System

Our telephone systems are old and need to be upgraded. We’d like to convert to a county-wide telephone solutions but lack the resources to do so.

Computer Assistance

We spend $7,500 each year in computer consulting fees and this is only resulting in a bandaid sort of solution to our computer needs. Do you have skills in computer networking? We need work in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Lompoc!
