We were delighted to be among the recipients of a gift of $100,000 from the Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara. This collective donor group, which enables women to combine their charitable giving into significant grants, made a meaningful gift to help with the essential improvements to our homeless women’s shelter. Campaign gifts such as this enable us to remain on schedule despite recent construction delays caused by fire and debris flows and the resulting closure of Highway 101.
“We are proud supporters of the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission,” said Shelley Hurst, Steering Chair of the Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara. “The work they do is critically important for our community. Through a recent grant from the Women’s Fund, we are excited to help the Rescue Mission increase their capacity to serve homeless women in need of emergency shelter.”
