Casa Esperanza is one of Santa Barbara’s most successful collaborative efforts. Casa Esperanza is unique in that services are provided to any individual or family that is willing to abide by a simple set of rules. Finding a place to rest your head does not depend on sobriety, employment, family structure or religion.
Casa Esperanza’s staff and volunteers build trusting relationships with the homeless. It is through these relationships that the homeless find the courage to seek and find the help they need. Transitional services, including drug and alcohol counseling, mental health care, housing and job placement assistance are all available at Casa Esperanza.
At Casa Esperanza we treat the symptoms of homelessness while building healthy relationships. Our services help homeless individuals and families develop long-term solutions with lasting success.
We measure our success by the number of people who receive shelter, and how many leave the streets in favor of a safe and secure living environment.
Hundreds of people find help at Casa Esperanza. For some, having a meal, a shower, and a fresh set of clothes is the boost they need to quickly leave homelessness. For many, Casa Esperanza serves as a support system, providing recovery services that address the mental, emotional and physical disabilities that many homeless people must confront.
