“Transition House is an emergency shelter and affordable housing provider offering comprehensive anti-poverty services for homeless families with children.”
In 1984, twelve faith communities in Santa Barbara joined forces with local services agencies and created Transition House to provide innovative and proven solutions to the cycle of poverty-based family homelessness. They have crafted anti-poverty programs aimed at helping clients find employment, save money, and plan their move back to housing. Their children’s programs, include onsite licensed infant care and an afterschool program.
In the beginning they proved their commitment and creativity by housing people in church basements and fellowship halls swapping congregations every thirty days. Two years later they had a quonset hut with a capacity of 35. Through the ensuing years, more properties have been acquired expanding their capacity to serving 150 homeless families with children and 50 families that are at-risk for homelessness to acquire the tools necessary for self-sufficiency each year. Their community-supported tradition continues with over 40 service or faith-based organizations and 900 volunteers donating their time and talents each year.
Parents are empowered to find work that pays a living wage, save money, develop life skills (including sound decision-making), and secure permanent housing for their families. Approximately 70 percent of homeless families who enter our emergency shelter program succeed in transitioning into permanent housing.
What We Did & Why
Transition House needed a straightforward informational site that would supply information to the community about the organization, serve their clients, volunteers, auxiliary and corporate partners. They needed a simple calendar for organizing dinner providers, a photo gallery for kid’s artwork, descriptions of their programs and information about staff, Board of Directors, Auxiliary and a newsletter archive.
