Homeless-Serving Agencies Leverage Resources Through Merger

People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) is one of the largest homeless services organizations in the State of California, with locations as far south as San Diego to as far north as San Luis Obispo. PATH approached Casa Esperanza, a full-service residential wellness center for people experiencing homelessness in the City of Santa Barbara, to merge into one organization. The combined organization allow for significant leveraging of resources so that the two agencies can have a more significant impact on homelessness in Santa Barbara than either agency could have alone. The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration provided an essential grant to offset a portion of the expenses associated with the merger.
