Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas

What we are most thankful for at the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission!

Road Trip to the Bayou

Our Women’s Auxiliary created the 21st annual Bayou event at Rancho Dos Pueblos’ private beach! We got our kicks on Route 66 and ended up in our version of Santa Monica with a beachside rest stop dinner by Lorraine Lim Catering. It was an extraordinary day to remember and honor Karl Willig as a longtime board member, friend, and advocate of the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission.
