Channel Islands YMCA Association Office Relocates to Downtown Santa Barbara

The Channel Islands YMCA Association Office has secured a new home in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, with the generous support and assistance of Union Bank.

The new location at the corner of Carrillo and Anacapa streets offers greater visibility and a unique opportunity for a nonprofit.

As the Channel Islands YMCA was seeking a new lease on its office space, the Union Bank property became an opportunity for the YMCA to redirect the same amount of funds for lease payments to mortgage payments.

“Union Bank went to great lengths to provide a purchase price and loan package that made it possible for the Channel Islands YMCA to purchase this prime property. This allows us to invest in our own assets and will eventually free funds to go directly to programs,” said Sal Cisneros, president and CEO of the Channel Islands YMCA. “This transaction  is a superb example of a socially responsible company like Union Bank investing in the long-term health of a community based organization like the Y.”

The YMCA will occupy a large portion of the building and is seeking a tenant for the additional 4,129 square feet of space.

An Open House is scheduled for Dec. 12 from 5 to 8 p.m. The new office is located at 105 E. Carrillo St.

— Tina Hernandez is the marketing and communications director for the Channel Islands YMCA.

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!
