Help Strengthen Your Community by Volunteering With Us!

Mission Statement

Santa Barbara Response Network (SBRN) is a grassroots, 501(C)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting fellow community members’ through traumatic experiences and toward resilient recovery. We respond to those affected by suicide, violence, natural disasters and any other traumatic incidents.  

How We Establish Resilience

Volunteers are trained in Psychological First-Aid (PFA) to respond to those impacted by trauma. PFA supports individuals and communities on the road to resilient recovery. We do not offer therapy, but rather organic support through person-to-person interactions.
