Formerly Landlord Liaison Partnership

Santa Barbara County Homeless Housing Programs Agencies


We value and work hand and hand with both Housing First and Housing Ready programs.

Housing First:

With Housing First, the goal is to lift clients off the street regardless of their barriers and give them the resources they need including housing to stabilize them. The idea is that being in a home will add the security needed for long-term success. By supporting programs that can provide rental and security deposit assistance as well as Coordinated Entry - we bring the final piece of the puzzle by offering:

  • Housing Navigation
  • Intensive Case Management
  • Retention Plan

Housing Ready:

Most clients need a transitional steppingstone out of homelessness into recovery and employment before they are ready to be placed with a private landlord. We value those agencies that have faithfully walked a client through that restorative process and are now looking for the next step. We provide that next step through:

  • Housing Navigation
  • Intensive Case Management
  • Retention Plan

Please contact us at [email protected] to schedule a meeting with our director Karen Nielsen so she can assess your agency’s individual needs and put together a proposal that will best fit your program.
