CALM in the Community
Adopt a Family
With the help of the community, CALM provided hundreds of children gifts, food and decorations during the 2012 holiday season through our Adopt-a-Family program. Many gave us toys, books and other gifts, but we also were able to provide essentials like blankets, coats and other wish-list items for families who are struggling to simply get by.
With the holidays just around the corner, CALM’s Adopt-a-Family initiative is gearing up for this year’s holiday season with the goal of serving 243 families. These families have sought help from CALM and are currently receiving counseling services. CALM will find a family to match your interests and will provide you with sizes and a wish list. Through your help, the children and families we serve will feel the sense of belonging and care of our unique community. You can buy a specially selected present for your assigned family member or leave the shopping to us. Any contribution would be warmly welcomed.
This is a wonderful way to involve your family in the spirit of giving, or join up with a group of friends or co-workers to give together!

CALM has been nominated by Montecito Bank and Trust to be one of 6 local non-profits that are in the running to be the beneficiary of the 2014 Santa Barbara Triathlon.
The winner will receive all the proceeds from next year’s event – possibly as much as $50,000! But we need your help! Simply click the VOTE button below to cast your vote.
You can only vote once, so please vote early and vote for CALM!

Speak up for kids by staying home!
Rather than host a gala event, CALM is speaking up for kids by educating our community and holding our second annual I WILL NOT BE SILENT, Silent Gala. Instead of spending precious resources on a party, all proceeds from our silent gala will be used directly for the treatment and prevention of child abuse.
Thanks to a generous group of donors, we will be able to match every dollar raised during the month of April.

Adopt a Room
CALM’s therapy rooms are used by hundreds of children each year. A place to heal and grow, the rooms are filled with games, books, and therapeutic toys. Over the years, the games lose their pieces, the book spines crack and the toys break. Eight therapy rooms are looking for a little love, and a fresh set of supplies.
How you can help
1. Donate an item for a therapy room
2. Adopt an entire room (full set of games, books, and toys)
3. Donate funds towards refurbishing a therapy room
