Since 1984, Transition House has developed a successful strategy for capable and motivated families to permanently regain self-sufficiency. The strategy is based on the understanding that the root cause of family homelessness is poverty. There may be other contributing factors, but underlying it all is poverty.
Transition House offers emergency shelter, transitional housing, and long-term affordable rental housing as well as a full continuum of anti-poverty services. The goal is to provide a realistic and lasting solution to poverty-based family homelessness.

Each year Transition House helps more than 700 community members – 350 of who use their three-stage housing program and services; the balance receives support through their homelessness prevention program. At least 90% of Transition House’s clients are our neighbors – they come from the greater Santa Barbara area.

At Free Methodist Church, we are honored to provide dinner and sack lunches for the residents of Transition House, 6 times each year. We are happy to accept specific food donations for the meals and cash donations.
