At Santa Maria, we believe that many individuals face conditions that challenge their ability to accomplish self-sufficiency. With the support of volunteers and donors, we will continue to provide the services that help families and individuals help themselves.

Santa Maria services including our health sites, health fairs, tutoring and more would cease to exist without the enormous volunteer support currently sustaining these programs. Our volunteer partnerships are evidence of the strong community support Santa Maria is fortunate to enjoy.

Santa Maria’s 400+ volunteers give an amazing 15,000+ hours of service each year. We would not be able to provide services to over 3,000 families and individuals annually without volunteer help and support.
