The residential complexes El Carrillo, Artisan Court and Bradley Studios all feature on-site supportive services for the formerly homeless and individuals with mental health challenges. PathPoint provides these support services, partnering with the Housing Authority of Santa Barbara, which manages these properties.
People with behavioral health needs learn skills best in the environment in which they will be used. To meet this goal, PathPoint strategically acquired affordable housing over the past three decades as a way to offset unaffordable rent costs for residents, ensuring housing stability while teaching independent living skills. That housing continues today, with PathPoint residential programs offering bedrooms at several housing sites (multi-family or single family homes).
In all or housing options we offer individual services. We treat every resident as unique, because you are! Some of you come with challenges, disabilities, anxieties or old patterns that you want help with. Some come with only questions that need answers and resources that need to be found. We will meet with you when you arrive to find out how we can assist you and what supports you need. These can include the following and more:
- Setting up your apartment - Accessing affordable food, connecting your telephone line.
- Gaining access to medical care or benefits – finding a doctor, getting SSI, MediCal, VA benefits.
