PATH Santa Barbara

PATH Santa Barbara is addressing homelessness for individuals and the community. Our interim housing facility is dedicated to helping homeless individuals access the services they need to improve their health, increase their income, and transition to stable housing - all under one roof. 

Volunteers are an essential part of the process for moving our residents from homelessness to homes. Volunteers will be trained and supervised by the experienced staff members and offer guidance and friendship on a daily basis to the residents who they are mentoring.


Become a Volunteer

PATH Santa Barbara and Community Kitchen have a wide range of volunteer opportunities for individuals, groups, agencies, corporations, and even students looking to complete community service hours. We encourage you to find the one that is right for you.

Community Kitchen

Urgent Need: Weekday support in our Community Kitchen
365 Days a year PATH Santa Barbara's Community Kitchen is open serving Santa Barbara's hungry and homeless, sharing our food with other homeless agencies including Common Ground, Giving Tree, Presbyterian Church, Rescue Mission, Salvation Army, Stalwart House, WillBridge, and Unity Shoppe. With only a handful of paid staff members, volunteers are the life-blood of this program. Opportunities are available to help prep and serve food during the week. Both individuals and groups are welcome.

Front Desk & Administrative Support

Admin Support

Urgent Need: Weekend and evening support in our Day Center
Interact directly with those we serve by being the smiling face at the front desk or by supporting one of our team members with administrative support. Volunteers go through a front desk training period before they are scheduled for a shift.


Volunteer navigators guide the homeless clients weekly to reach there goals established with their case management schedule. Navigators are able to create a friendship with each client to support them through this time of transition in their lifes.

Corporate Volunteering


PATH Santa Barbara is grateful to the many companies in our community—from small business to large corporations—whose employees and executives come volunteer at PATH. Whether once a year, or once a month, local companies make a difference.


You can help ensure the work being done at PATH Santa Barbara continues by hosting a fundraiser. If you have an idea for a fundraiser or would like to help creating one, contact Tessa at:
