4th of July Carnival


We are holding our seventh annual 4th of July Carnival for our homeless guests on Friday, July 4 from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m.  The celebration will occur in the parking lot located at 535 E. Yanonali St.  We are preparing to serve a BBQ dinner to feed approximately 300 homeless men, women and children.  Through the efforts of the Women’s Auxiliary there will be music to entertain guests, a carnival of games, and raffle prizes provided. The men and women in the Mission’s 12-month Residential Recovery Program will also be present to lend a helping hand.

Rolf Geyling, President of the Rescue Mission, stated, “Life on the streets is never easy. That is why the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission works so hard to create a warm, welcoming, homelike atmosphere––especially during the holidays.” The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is the only local agency providing summer overnight shelter to the homeless, along with other emergency services and life-changing recovery programs.
