About Community Partners in Caring
Established in 1997, Community Partners in Caring—a 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit (ID# 77-0477176) — is a community outreach organization that coordinates volunteers for the purpose of providing free non-medical support services to seniors (age 62+) that allow them to age in place while maintaining dignity, respect, and quality of life.
Through a combination of volunteer opportunities, social activities, workshops, free direct assistance, and referral services we support the well-being, safety, dignity, independence as well as the physical, emotional, and mental health of seniors throughout Santa Barbara County.
Community donations and community volunteers enable this agency to provide needed services to seniors. To volunteer or make a donation, please visit their website: www.partnersincaring.org
