PHP’s philosophy is to give families and individuals a ‘hand up” to achieve self-sufficiency. PHP has a ‘model service delivery program,’ integrating services for infants, children, youth and adults into a “one stop shop” that has multiple neighborhood access points. Clients can make a single contact with a PHP Family Services Coordinator at a Family Resource Center at area schools, receive any of PHP’s 17 program services and/or receive help in obtaining services from other non-profit or government agencies. This system minimizes costs and maximizes getting help to those who need it.
Major Programs include:
Basic Needs: Food and Emergency Services (Rent/Mortgage Assistance, Mobile Home Repair, Utility Assistance)
Health Care: Community Health Access Resource Team (CHART), Children’s Dental Fund
Youth Programs: Buellton After School Youth Program, Mentoring, Student Action Prevention Network (SPAN), Youth Coalition, and Early Childhood Mental Health Counseling
Family Support: Domestic Violence Prevention, Parent Education, Advocacy, Case Management, Christmas Fulfill-A-Wish, and Family Resource Centers. Resource Centers are a focal point for families who formerly were isolated to gather and share concerns and ideas to improve their student’s and families’ lives.
In addition to its own services, People Helping People makes the services of other governmental and non-profit organizations conveniently available within its “Under 1 Roof” program. For a list of these services choose the link below.
