Volunteers 2019



In a region as rich with philanthropy and selfless giving as Northern Santa Barbara County is, it’s hard to narrow down just which organizations to write about and who to highlight in our annual Volunteers Issue—but we have to. In this week’s issue, you can read about how CALM (Child Abuse Listening Meditation) helps make the holiday season a little bit bright for families and children in need [9], one woman’s mission to help pets in the county get the medical help they need [12], and how you can help with the county’s biennial Point in Time Count of local homeless [15].

Weekly Poll
Guadalupe is in the midst of new development, but is that a good thing?

No. The new homes will expand the town too much and run the small-town vibe.
No. Commercial development will follow and destroy all the local businesses.
Yes. The town can't survive another economic downturn without more business and residents in town.
Yes, but the town has to steer development toward tourism and the hospitality industry.
