Experience a Virtual Guided Tour Celebrating the Meaning of Home

PATH (People Assisting The Homeless) hosts their fourth annual Making It Home Tour on Saturday, June 5, 2021, a virtual, guided journey through the homes of PATH supporters and residents across California. The virtual compilation of unique home tours and personal interviews celebrates the meaning of home after a year of accelerated homelessness due to COVID-19.

In March 2020, staying inside to keep local communities safe was paramount, and having a home was a privilege. Last year, PATH provided services to more than 26,000 people and helped 1,800 people move into their own homes.

“While we have made many adjustments this year, including teleworking and virtual events, one thing has remained the same: our mission to end homelessness for individuals, families, and communities. The Making it Home Tour provides vital funds to sustain our work and an opportunity to showcase what home means to our supporters and the people we serve”, said Joel John Roberts, PATH CEO.

The Making It Home Tour will feature historic and architectural gems throughout

 California, including the famed Frank Lloyd Wright Jr.’s Warwick Evans House in Brentwood and one of the esteemed Architect Jeff Shelton’s Santa Barbara properties.

In addition to in-depth tours of each home, attendees will tour PATH Housing Sites in San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego and also gain access to interactive DIY home, decor, and design workshops from A&J Floral Designs, Loft & Bear Vodka and BobCat Room.

For ultimate viewing pleasure, special event packages are also available, mailed to each participant’s home the week of the event. Event packages include exclusive PATH wine glasses, wine from noteworthy California vineyards, travel-safe charcuterie items courtesy of Trader Joe’s, and more!

The Making It Home Tour streams on June 5, 2021 from 3 P.M. to 4 P.M. PST. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/path-making-it-home-tour-tickets-142755408269. All proceeds will go toward PATH’s mission of ending homelessness for individuals, families and communities.

Welcome Home

Moving off the streets is an opportunity for someone who has experienced homelessness not to just find a place to rest his or her head, but also a chance to regain independence and stability. Understanding this, PATH makes sure that every person placed in housing moves into their new home with dignity – by providing clients with “welcome home kits” including household essentials.
All private donations help fund critical programs and move people off the streets and into homes here in Santa Barbara. For every $1,000 we raise, PATH can help an individual take the final steps into a home of their own.
