Partnerships & PCC
To accomplish the goals of the Resident Services Program, we partner with numerous local community organizations, government affiliates, and business associates that will best serve the needs expressed by housing clientele.
Community partners have come together to form an organization known as the HASBARCO Program Coordinating Committee, or PCC. The PCC consists of Partners that have dedicated resources to assist housing clientele. These partners also attend regular meetings with the Housing Authority, review successes, address relevant issues, plan events, and adjust services as necessary. The PCC contributes to the overall success and direction of the Resident Services Program.
PCC members generally provide services on-site at various Housing Authority Complexes throughout the countywide jurisdiction of the agency, but not all services are equally available in all areas. Most PCC sponsored services are available at NO COST to the client, providing the client enrolls in the HASBARCO Resident Services Program and receives a written Resident Services Referral to the service provider. Partners may provide services on site, via the internet, or from their own offices. Not all Partners are members of the PCC, but they will accept written referrals from Resident Services on a clients behalf.
Invitation to Prospective Partners
The Resident Services Program is continuously seeking additional services and resources to meet the needs of the clientele we serve. If your organization or affiliate serves a targeted clientele of low-income families or individuals that you believe could benefit from a service or activity that you are willing to provide at little, (or preferably), no cost to the client, please take a moment to consider becoming a Partner and/or PCC Member. You may select to submit either your signed PCC Statement of Commitment, or a Service Activity Application. If you are still in doubt, please contact the Resident Services Coordinator for further discussion by calling 805-925-4393 ext. 3300. We look forward to hearing from you, and greatly appreciate your time and consideration toward a potential partnership!
(All prospective partnership requests remain subject to the approval of the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Barbara, and the HASBARCO Program Coordinating Committee).

PCC Mission Statement
The HASBARCO Resident Services Program Coordinating Committee is founded on the belief that we shall promote the development of local strategies to coordinate the use of assistance under self-sufficiency programs with public and private resources, which will enable participating families to increase earned income, and financial literacy, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, and assist the elderly and/or disabled to maintain their independence and age in place.
Our mission is to provide HASBARCO assisted renters with linkages to supportive services on a regular, ongoing, and satisfactory basis, and coordinate services between programs for the same geographic area or the same population.
In carrying out our mission for all participating families we are committed to:
- Leveraging shared resources
- Avoiding duplication of services
- Improving access to services
- Improving the delivery of services
- Increasing economic independence
- Improving the quality of life
