This has undoubtedly been one of the most difficult times our beautiful Santa Barbara community has endured. But even in the face of loss, there’s solace to be found in the aftermath of the Thomas Fire and Flood disasters.
I take heart in knowing our first responders are spending great time and effort keeping families safe and feel proud when I see selfless community members step up to help those who’ve lost so much.
Hospice of Santa Barbara’s staff and volunteers strive to do the same by being at the forefront of serving our residents in need when tragedy strikes. It is our priority to help our neighbors throughout their healing process as they work to confront their grief.
As we continue to heal from the Thomas Disaster, Hospice of Santa Barbara is offering a variety of specialized counseling and support groups to local individuals and families, free of charge. In addition, Hospice of Santa Barbara is now providing services through our new Compassionate Care of Carpinteria Initiative so that we can assist our Carpinteria friends more locally.
We have a long road of recovery, but I am confident that in the days to come, we will emerge stronger than ever with the same kind of resiliency that helped us overcome the devastation of the Thomas Fire.
