Mentor Lunch

You can’t spend much time around the Rescue Mission without hearing the mantra “Recovery Happens in Relationships”…because it’s the truth.  An important part of the work God does in our program involves surrounding men and women with people who genuinely care for them and are committed to them and their recovery.  These volunteer mentors from the church community here in Santa Barbara spend one-on-one time and convey God’s love and care through the time they spend with individual residents.  Many mentor relationships extend beyond our program and become life-long friendships.
