Located at 4849 Hollister Ave. in Santa Barbara, The Salvation Army's mission is to meet human need wherever it is found in the name of Jesus Christ without discrimination.
We provide emergency and rehabilitation assistance, youth development services, and community programs targeting families of all ages. Food distribution to the needy is accomplished daily, based on appointment! Additionally, holiday assistance is conducted seasonally to over 350 families helping with toys and food. Our Activity Center hosts a variety of community groups providing other programs that complement our mission to serve our surrounding community. Our spiritual services offer family style fellowship every Sunday with additional programs for all during the week. Adult services include our Hospitality House Transitional Residential Stabilization Program. For more information see Adult Services on this site.

The Salvation Army, IN THE NEWS
The Salvation Army and Restorative Court
The Salvation Army has participated in Restorative Court since its inception in 2011. Restorative Court addresses the crimes associated with our growing population of homeless. The goal of this diversionary court is to help clients living a lifestyle that results in a high number of encounters with police, the courts, jail, emergency responders and the hospital. If they agree to case management (aimed to improve their quality of life) and remain citation free for six months with our assistance, their tickets will be dismissed. The long term goal is to offer wrap around services (mental health assistance, substance abuse programming, income, community adaptation) necessary to make independent living possible.
