PATH Santa Barbara will host its second annual A Toast to Home fundraiser Saturday, June 3 at Sunstone Winery, 125 N. Refugio Road in Santa Ynez.
PATH works to end homelessness by providing housing services, street outreach, mental health services, and employment support. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward supportive services for people experiencing homelessness in Santa Barbara.
A Toast to Home will feature Sunstone wines, regional fare, and an inspirational program about PATH’s lifesaving work. Vineyard party attire is encouraged.
VIP tickets are available and include an exclusive grape stomping experience at the winery. For more information, click here.
Several elected leaders are expected to attend the event, including County Supervisor Das Williams, Santa Barbara City Councilmembers Michael Jordan and Oscar Gutierrez, and a representative from the office of State Sen. Monique Limón.
Partnering with county and city agencies, PATH has 100 interim beds where individuals can find respite from the streets while working to secure permanent homes and achieve self-sufficiency.
PATH also opens its doors during inclement weather and provide temporary beds to unsheltered individuals.
Last year, PATH Santa Barbara provided services to more than 1,000 people, including 65 whose homelessness was ended. Since 2015, some 2,100 people in Santa Barbara have made it home thanks to PATH.
One unique approach Santa Barbara has adopted to end homelessness in its region is through its scattered site permanent supportive housing program. This program helps connect individuals experiencing homelessness to private market apartments, and integrate them into new communities where they can live and thrive.
