To provide a program where each of those serving, and those who are being served, are respected and valued as equally important assets of our nonprofit community. Our goal is to provide social services in the community with dignity, to persons 62+ and/ or disabled of low income.
To afford every opportunity through empathy, grace, education and awareness of the available resources and services offered in our community. To encourage, social activities, healthy nutrition and stimulation while offering our facility and our nonprofit as a luminous to all nonprofits and volunteers in our community. J.W. Jeffries
Pilgrim Terrace Co-Op Homes
The program was designed for a non profit to hold the property in trust. Pilgrim Terrace Cooperative Homes (DBA) was the non profit who served as a management oversight entity. PTCH has always been governed by resident volunteers and selected members of the Santa Barbara Community who serve on the Board of Directors.
In order to facilitate the rehabilitation and to provide for the 55-year preservation of low-income housing, PTCH entered into a partnership with Reiner Communities.
The partnership secured tax-exempt bonds and tax credits in order to pay off the existing HUD mortgage, acquire the property and perform the rehabilitation. Reiner Communities now manages the housing element allowing PTCH the freedom to offer full time social services to our residents and the entire Santa Barbara Community through networking with other non profits.
