Snacks and food
Counseling services
Hygiene items
Supply items
Clothing

Drop-in services

Young people are also encouraged to access our drop-in center at 301 West Figueroa for basic needs assistance and help with short and long term goal development.

Transitional Age Youth (TAY)
Our staff works directly with youth between the ages of 16-24 who are dealing with issues related to self-sufficiency, independence, and development of personal potential. These services are targeted to youth who are transitioning or have transitioned out of foster care, the juvenile justice system, or the Noah’s Anchorage residential program.

TAY staff provides assistance with:

Independent living skills
Identifying and meeting educational goals
Finding and gaining employment
Securing a safe place to live

Notice: Noah's Anchorage Renovation Project

We are excited to announce due to the generosity of the Whimsie Fund and the Women’s Fund of Santa Barbara, Noah’s will be undergoing a major interior renovation project. In order to ensure a safe and quick project completion, we will be temporarily modifying our services and operations. Please note the calendar of services and location sites provided below.

We will continue to provide updates to our partners and the community as we make progress and as new information is available. At the completion of the renovation project Noah’s will resume 24-hour services (drop-in, residential and crisis telephone line). Thank you for your continued partnership and commitment to serving our youth and young adults.

This does not affect our Transitional Living Program, My Home or the St. George Youth Center in Isla Vista.
