Santa Barbara Rescue Mission Begins Remodel of Facility

Santa Barbara Rescue Mission has broken ground on the 40,000 square foot remodel of its facility located at 535 East Yanonali Street. This project represents three years of planning, permitting, and initial fundraising to recreate a facility which will better serve as an anchor for services to the homeless and addicted in the community.

“I feel like I have so much more value now. My confidence is built up by the people around me here every single day, when I’ve been told I’m worthless my whole life. Now I have dreams. I know what I want to try to be and that I can get up and go to work and go to meetings when I have problems. I can pray, have people to call, and I have friends. I haven’t had friends since 6th grade! I’m coming out of the ashes into something new!”
