United Way of Santa Barbara
United Way creates partnerships and programs that improve education, health, and financial stability across Santa Barbara County. These programs include free tax preparation services, summer educational opportunities, and literacy programs for kids. They also have begun a rent assistance program to support families whose incomes have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I love volunteering with United Way especially, because the kids are a blast to play with and everyone always comes back to the office afterwards with high spirits. No pep talk in the world gets you as pumped as a big bear hug and a toothy grin from a 5th grader.”
– Megan Phillips, Transaction Manager
