We are grateful for Mike’s remarkable reflection at our spring graduation ceremony and the power of all of our graduates’ testimonies.

Spring Graduation Success


On Saturday evening, we celebrated the accomplishments of the 16 men and women who are graduating from our 12-month drug and alcohol treatment program. Over 350 friends, family, volunteers, and donors came to cheer them on and congratulate them on their remarkable success. We are grateful to God for His transforming power and the Santa Barbara Community Church for hosting this important celebration.
