Give to the Y
Crisis Hotline



When you give to Youth and Family Services YMCA, you make a meaningful difference for young people in your community. Youth and Family Services provides critical services to children, youth and families of Santa Barbara, Goleta, Isla Vista and Carpinteria.

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, strengthening communities is the YMCA cause. At Youth and Family Services, we believe that when we all work together, every child and young person will have the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

Your support to our annual campaign helps the Y deliver on our commitment:

  • To give children safe and nurturing places to go like Noah’s Anchorage Youth Crisis Shelter and the Isla Vista Teen where they find security and connection
  • To nurture the potential of youth by building confidence, foundational skills and values through academic enrichment in safe after-school programs
  • To empower young people in crisis with the resources they need to improve their lives and connect to the community
  • To offer programs and services for emancipated foster youth that help them build their paths to independence


Heritage Club – Planned Giving

YMCA’s Heritage Club is a special group of individuals who have chosen to remember the YMCA or Youth and Family Services with a planned gift through their estate or by making an outright gift to our endowment.
