Between all of its programs, the Rescue Mission has 200 people sleeping under its roof every night of the year. This requires a significant investment in our physical plant and, on occasion, major attention to maintenance issues that arise. Addressing these while trying to continue the services people depend on can present an additional challenge. We had such an instance recently when the building that houses Sober Living, the Outpatient Program, Homeless Health Clinic and Learning Center needed to be treated for termites.
Thanks to the Santa Barbara Foundation, Jhonny’s Pest Control and our team working diligently to address all of the logistics involved, we’re grateful that we were able to get this major project done to insure that these vital services will have a sound home to operate in. Not to mention, it made for a pretty memorable photo.
