We Need You! Want to make a huge difference in senior's lives? This is your opportunity to share your love and compassion in
becoming a Santa Barbara Village volunteer.

Santa Barbara Village "Regular Volunteers" help with daily living needs like grocery shopping, friendly visits, and light help around member's
homes; "Volunteer Drivers" help members get to places they need to go when they can't or shouldn't drive themselves!

In volunteering you play a key role on our Village team by adding quality of life and success as our members are aging in place.

Pizza and drinks will be served while we meet you and go over our volunteer program and our vetting procedure. At the end you will be invited to sign up if it is a fit for you!
