Unity Shoppe works with a vast network of referral partners to provide a variety of services to under-resourced individuals in the Santa Barbara area. More than 400 social service agencies refer thousands of families, seniors, and disabled individuals to Unity when there is an essential household need which cannot be met through the referring partners programs or mission.

Accessing Unity’s services is easy as 1-2-3

  1. Request a Service Referral from one of our collaborating partners
  2. Bring your referral, ID, and Birth Certificates for any dependent children to the Client Service Center
  3. Shop for your needs with dignity, respect, choice – twice a month except December (only one visit)

The Client Services Center is located at 1401 Chapala Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101
