CALM’s signature fall event – CALM at Heart – raised more than $315,000 for vulnerable children and families experiencing trauma throughout the county.

Guests gathered at Susan and Robert Lieff’s Los Suenos estate in Montecito for the ninth annual luncheon in a garden setting. The event, led by emcee Geoff Green of Santa Barbara City College Foundation, featured a program from Adolfo Garcia, director of clinical operations; Yvonne Nelson, North County regional manager; and Alana Walczak, president/CEO.

More than 250 supporters joined event co-chairs Carolyn Fitzgerald, Belle Hahn, Analise Maggio and Caroline Powers in honoring the last year of CALM’s work, and sharing the vision for the future.

“As board chair, I am constantly inspired by how the team at CALM shows up for the families in our community by working to prevent and heal trauma,” said Powers. “I am energized by how our supporters showed up for CALM in such a meaningful way; allowing us to continue this essential, life-changing work throughout the county.”

CALM strives to create a community where every family is supported, and every child thrives. This year’s theme of Transforming Communities reflected and acknowledged the collective trauma of the past year and its impact on the county for generations to come. With the help of supporters, CALM is providing vital mental health services system-wide throughout the community.

All funds from the event support CALM’s childhood trauma prevention and treatment programs.
