Join us for the 1st Hustlers Happy Hour of 2019! For our 1st HHH of the year, we'll be checking out Oreana Winery in the Funk Zone, a local favorite. This event is perfect for new members, and savvy veterans alike. Fun + light, feel free to drop in or stay the whole time. This will be a great chance to meet new friends, hear what's on the Hustlers' 2019 agenda, and let us know how you'd like to participate this year. Are you a leader? Hustlers is looking for members to help us take on important issue, and find opportunities for us to volunteer! Comment below, message us, or bring your enthusiasm to Oreana on the 17th to let us know how you'd like to help!
Hustlers is in talks with Youth Interactive to host a showing of the 2018 HBO documentary "King in the Wilderness" on MLK Day evening. I saw this movie twice already, and was inspired to organize a public showing. Additionally, The MLK Jr Committee of SB hosts a series of wonderful events on MLK Day, and throughout that weekend beginning Thursday night at the UCSB MLK Jr Eternal Flame. See an overview below for all events on the MLK Day holiday, Mon., Jan 21. Volunteers ARE needed! I encourage you to get involved.

Point in Time Count is a count of all sheltered and unsheltered persons living on the streets. It is hosted on a single morning every 2 years, and communities across the US participate. We welcome you to join the Hustlers and volunteer for the 2019 Count, held Thursday, Jan. 24th from 5-8:30am. There will be a training in January for volunteers that will be announced. I have participated in this count before, and it is a true community-wide effort with hundreds of volunteers. It is a wonderful way to support the issue of homelessness in Santa Barbara. Click through below to sign up online, and please spread the word to others that may want to be involved that morning. https://h4gsbc.wordpress.com/common-ground-santa-barbara-county/
