About PHP

People Helping People is dedicated to improving the lives of men, women, and children in the Santa Ynez Valley, Los Alamos, and surrounding communities by addressing emergency and basic needs, furnishing comprehensive integrated family and individual support services, and acting as a catalyst for positive community change.


PHP has worked hard to be a valuable resource to the entire community to ensure that individuals and families have access to the services they need to become self-sufficient. The continued charitable works of PHP are dependent on the financial and time commitments of community members. Without this help, PHP cannot help.

Programs & Services

PHP’s philosophy is to give families and individuals a “hand up” to achieve self-sufficiency by integrating services for infants, children, and adults into a “one stop shop” with multiple neighborhood access points. Clients can make a single contact with a Family Services Advocate to receive any of PHP’s 18 program and services.
