Balay Ko on Barca has 30 units and is ready to house 50 people who are impacted by homelessness. The program is intended for a transitional period of 90 to 180 days to help people with basic essentials, health resources, job stability and permanent housing.

5CHC was successful with their launch of Cabins for Change in 2022 which has seen a 70% success rate in permanent housing transitions. The need seen in the county motivated their newest community on Barca to help people bridge the gap between homelessness and stability.
