DignityMoves’ La Posada Village receives Resolution from County Board of Supervisors

By DignityMoves

The County of Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors recognized the grand opening of La Posada Village, a development designed by innovative housing developer DignityMoves to provide interim housing to individuals experiencing homelessness.

The Board plans to pass a resolution recognizing La Posada’s community contributions through its offer of shelter, dignity, help, and hope to vulnerable Santa Barbara residents.

“La Posada opens doors for some of our community’s most vulnerable. It opens doors for shelter, food, warmth, and safety. It opens doors for a chance to forge a new path and to reclaim dignity and hope. I couldn’t be more proud of the County for partnering with DignityMoves to address the issue of homelessness head on – and to have La Posada housed in the Second District,” said Supervisor Laura Capps

La Posada opened on Friday, April 12 at 4500 Hollister Avenue in Santa Barbara, the former Santa Barbara County Juvenile Hall site. The 80-unit housing community is meant to close the gap between living unsheltered and achieving housing stability through a collaboration between DignityMoves, the County of Santa Barbara, and Good Samaritan Shelter, the service provider and operator.

“This recognition is very meaningful for DignityMoves as it validates the important work that we are doing with our partners including Santa Barbara County and Good Samaritan, the service provider for the Village,” said Jack Lorenz, Regional Advancement Officer, Santa Barbara. “We are grateful for the leadership of our SB County Supervisors,” said Lorenz.

This location will serve individuals living in encampments near the 101 freeway and nearby railroad tracks. With 24/7 security, intensive case management, three free meals a day, and on-site mental and physical healthcare services as well as transportation access, La Posada will help unhoused individuals reach the stability they need to focus on their mental health, addiction recovery, career exploration and longer-term stable housing solutions.

In partnership with the County of Santa Barbara and Good Samaritan, DignityMoves’ La Posada Village is part of a Santa Barbara County-wide effort to end homelessness.
