Sanctuary Centers has received a two-year grant award from Cottage Population Health and additional support from the St. Francis Foundation for the delivery of free counseling and psychiatric services for Santa Barbara’s youth. This partnership could not have come at a better time as we are just beginning to see the true cost the pandemic has taken on the world’s young people.

Sanctuary Centers began this program in January and is currently at capacity and seeking additional office space to be able to provide the care and treatment so many young people have had to wait months to receive.

To that end, Sanctuary is seeking the help of the community in identifying 2,000-3,000 square feet of viable office space in the downtown quadrant between Garden  Castillo, Cota and Mission streets.
