Expanding Services to Those in Need
Sanctuary Centers is seeking to raise $18 million to build a five-story facility that will significantly increase its ability to serve those living with mental illness and substance use disorders. Located in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, adjacent to the Sanctuary Centers’ Outpatient Mental Health and Housing campus, the new facility will nearly double its number of affordable housing apartments and significantly increase its number of individual and group therapy rooms. Until now, the fundraising drive has relied on major gifts from friends of Sanctuary Centers, including two special benefit concerts hosted by musician Jackson Browne. Today, the organization is embarking on a more ambitious fundraising campaign to ensure the long-term sustainability of its programs and services.
