PathPoint Services in Santa Barbara

The original site of PathPoint, communities within Santa Barbara County are diverse, and PathPoint’s services reflect the unique opportunities and challenges that are inherent in urban and rural areas.

PathPoint’s South Santa Barbara County division has been providing services to individuals with developmental disabilities in the communities of Carpinteria, Santa Barbara and Goleta since 1964.

North Santa Barbara County is a fast-growing area marked by vineyards, agriculture and aerospace.

The two major cities of Lompoc and Santa Maria have seen dramatic growth in the last few years as people flock to the affordable housing and temperate climate.
