Our Team

Noah’s Anchorage operates programs that provide a continuum of care to underserved at-risk youth, young adults and families experiencing homelessness, neglect, and abuse in the greater Santa Barbara area. Youth, young adults, and families in high-risk environments that participate in our services experience greater safety and well-being while they work toward the future. Our staff work alongside those in need to provide case management, education, life skills coaching, counseling and much more all free of charge. Donations, grants, and legacy gifts maintain our services and ensure that Noah’s Anchorage YMCA Programs are delivered. Services at Noah’s Anchorage is truly a partnership with many community organizations that believe in helping youth in times of crisis.
