The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission is invaluable to our community. They provide food and shelter to the neediest in our community, the homeless who are often struggling with mental illness and substance abuse recovery.
President Rolf Geyling says, "The Rescue Mission has the only walk-in shelter beds that are available 365 nights a year and that's 13 beds for women," Geyling said. "Typically we have 22 to 24 women stay. Some nights, as many as 30."
The Rescue Mission remodel will double its capacity for housing homeless women and is expected to finish in the Spring of 2019.
