Garden Court residents have raised over $600 in the last few months through cookie sales for Direct Relief USA’s response to weather related emergencies throughout the nation, providing medical supplies and support for those affected. The residents survive on very low monthly incomes, which makes their service to others in need even more admirable.
Garden Court promotes a high level of resident engagement within the community and encourages volunteerism.
Garden Court on De La Vina
Garden Court provides enhanced independent living for frail, low-income Santa Barbara seniors to live independently for as long as possible. Many of Garden Court’s 97 seniors, 62 years of age or older, are long-time Santa Barbara area residents who worked all their lives serving the Santa Barbara community as laborers, nurses, business owners and teachers. These residents are spending their golden years as an active part of the community they helped to shape and tend. Garden Court is a public-private partnership through the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara and Parsons Group. For more information, visit www.gardencourt.org.
