Mission Statement:

Street Health Outreach (SHO) is a UCSB campus organization dedicated to providing basic care to the houseless communities of Santa Barbara County, principally those in Isla Vista, and assisting other community organizations in improving the health of those living on streets and in shelters. We believe that keeping our local houseless population healthy is fundamental to the well-being of the entire community, and we do our part in supporting them by doing outreach on weekend mornings.
