Resident Services

Resident Services strives to provide supportive services and programs that can help HASBARCO assisted clients improve their quality of life, achieve self-sufficiency, and/or maintain their independence and age in place.

To participate in a Resident Services Program, a family must be currently receiving housing assistance, and/or living in a Housing Authority Owned or Managed Property, that is designed to receive Resident Services.

While the Center is located in Santa Maria, the department strives to provide services to all HASBARCO residents. Resident meetings are held in each local housing area and all HASBARCO residents are invited to participate.
