CREATING PATHWAYS FOR CHILDRENYOUTH TO FLOURISH 

WHERE WE DO OUR WORK

The Pro Deo Foundation has partnered with ministries worldwide; however, our primary work is in Santa Barbara County, and Orange County.

THE NEED


Santa Barbara County and Orange County are beautiful places, surrounded by beaches and mountains, but in the midst of their natural beauty, there is also a lot of pain and struggle and the needs of its residents are real and often overlooked.

 

Santa Barbara and Orange County are also home to:

Hidden Poverty

Over 1-4 children in Santa Barbara and Orange County live below the poverty line, which are some 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 .
