THE NEED

Santa Barbara County is a beautiful place, surrounded by beaches, mountains, and Spanish architecture but in the midst of its natural beauty, there is also a lot of pain and struggle. 

 

Santa Barbara is also home to:

Hidden Poverty

1-5 people in Santa Barbara County live below the poverty line, which is one of the highest in the state and is often hidden in plain sight.


Students Who Are Falling Behind 

Many students are not able to keep up. In some cases, up to 70% of students do not meet grade standards in math and English. 


Limited Options For Many Students

A significant opportunity gap exists in our local communities, causing an achievement gap, which creates a lack of options after high school for many students .
