Community Service Work
The Community Service Work (CSW) Program acts as the placement agency for adult and juvenile offenders in Santa Barbara County who are ordered by the courts or probation to complete community service work hours in lieu of fines, as a condition of probation, or as a mandated sentencing option.
Clients are charged a program participation fee based on the number of hours ordered. Clients are assigned to over 150 public and private-nonprofit agencies throughout Santa Barbara County. These agencies provide a variety of supervised work opportunities for clients to complete their ordered community service work.
Court ordered fines may be worked off at a rate of $10.00 per hour.
The CSW Program reports the client's successful or unsuccessful completion of their community service work hours directly to the court or probation.
