CALM to Host Open House in Appreciation of Community’s Open Hearts

Meet the staff and learn more about the organization at the special event on June 21

CALM is pleased to open its doors to the Santa Barbara community for an Open House, celebrating the impact of and support for the “I Will Not Be Silent” campaign and the Silent Gala.

CALM invites the community to visit its Santa Barbara headquarters at 1236 Chapala St. downtown, on the corner of Chapala and Victoria streets, from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, June 21. Meet the staff, and learn more about CALM’s vital programs and services and its mission to prevent and treat child abuse in Santa Barbara County.

The Board of Trustees will be on site to welcome visitors and introduce them to CALM’s specialists. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the pet therapy dogs, learn about art, play and parent-child interaction therapies, and meet the experts. Wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be available.

CALM’s goal for this community awareness event is to show visitors and supporters the direct impact that their support has, not only for the children and families that CALM serves, but also for the entire community. It’s through community gifts and donations that CALM is able to continue preventing, assessing and treating child abuse. CALM wishes to thank everyone for showing their support through the “I Will Not Be Silent” campaign and for strongly standing up against child abuse.

Unfortunately, child abuse does happen every day, in many forms — violence, sexual, neglect — and it continues to go unreported. CALM will continue to fight against child abuse for as long as it takes. Pledge your support today and join CALM’s I Will Not Be Silent Campaign. Also, be sure to vote for CALM on Cultivate Wine’s “The Give” contest for nonprofits to win up to $50,000.

CALM was founded in 1970 to reach stressed parents before they hurt their children. It continues to be the only non-profit agency in Santa Barbara County focusing solely on preventing, assessing, and treating child abuse and family violence through comprehensive, cutting-edge programs. CALM offers children, families, and adults a safe, non-judgmental, caring, and strength-based environment to heal and increase family well-being.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
