Along with finding a program that fits your needs, it is also important that it be a good fit for your spouse/partner and family. Therefore, we have put together some additional community resources to give you a more in-depth look at our area. A good place to start is the Chamber of Commerce Website: www.salinaschamber.com.
Our residents live all over Monterey County as well as Santa Cruz and San Jose. Choosing housing in the area really depends on your personal preferences: rent or buy, rural or urban, beach or inland. It’s all available within a 45 minute commute. Naturally, all of these variables will affect how much you will be paying per month.
