"SBRN's mission is to offer psychological first aid and response in the aftermath of critical and traumatic incidences. The organization must be invited into the community to begin its work, an invitation that can be extended by an individual, family, or organization. SBRN is unique in that it is not an agency doing mandated work, but instead consists of a group of committed volunteers giving both their heart and their time."

"The Santa Barbara Response Network is committed to nurturing the development of resilient, self-empowered communities that are supported by their own members in a time of need."
