Santa Barbara County has joined Housing for the Harvest, the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s new program that provides temporary hotel housing for agricultural workers in need of a place to self-isolate after testing positive for COVID-19. Santa Barbara is the third county to participate in the program, which includes both Fresno and San Joaquin counties.
The Santa Barbara County Department of Public Health will partner with the local Family Service Agency to manage the program.
Farmworkers or food processing workers in Santa Barbara County who are in need of these services are urged to call Family Service Agency at (805) 325-5341. Please note that personal information gathered through this process will be kept confidential.
