Housing Santa Barbara Day is an annual free public event for community members to connect with local non-profit agencies and service providers, and participate in housing related workshops. Housing affordability is vital for the homeless population, low-income residents, and for all workers in all industries that support the community.
“Housing Santa Barbara Day is an important day in our community for working families to connect with affordable housing resources that are available,” said Jerry Morales, a HACSB representative. “This annual event will give the community a chance to collaborate with the city to voice their concerns, find affordable housing and spend a day of fun with their families.”
October is National Housing America Month, a time when communities throughout the country celebrate local housing efforts and a time to raise awareness for the need for additional affordable housing through education, advocacy, and empowerment.
