Lock and Handle Sets
We still need to replace many of the doors for the facility.  Each door is appoximately $350.  Special thanks to Schlage for donating and master keying all the new door handles, lock sets and hinges for the whole facility.  Please let us know if you would like to help replace doors.

We are so grateful to Owens Corning for donating the roofing shingles for all the buildings however we still need to cover the other materials and labor.


Thanks to Coast Supply along with their vendors they have supplied 10,000 feet of beautiful flooring and installation.  They have already completed two of the cottages and now working on classrooms.

Three buildings done six to go.  Thanks to Vista Paint for donating hundreds of gallons of paint along with Max at Handy Man Masters along with many other volunteers the buildings are in the process of being  transformed as they are painted inside and out creating beautiful feel for all those we are working to help.
Tree Trimming & Weed Wacking
With 214 acres on top of a mountain covered with oak trees the weed wacking, tree trimming and removal never seems to end.  If you interested in helping please let us know.
Beautifying grounds
We are adding wood chips around buildings, installing irrigation and planting fruit trees.  If you have a green thumb please join us as we hope to start the organic garden this year.
Move Commercial Kitchen to Cafeteria
Moving the commercial kitchen to the cafeteria is on the way with architectural plans being developed.  The existing commercial kitchen is currently 1/2 mile away from cafeteria and transporting food and dishes for each meal then bringing back all the dirty dishes is hard on the team.

Stone House Campaign


The Stone House was built around 1923 with beautiful rocks hewn from the mountain property. The house was formally visited by dignitaries and celebrities for retreats and respite before hosting many other groups and organizations as a retreat house. Set in the back drop of the Santa Barbara mountains with magnificent ocean views, we are setting out to restore the Stone House to it’s former glory!

We believe that the greatest days of the Stone House are yet to come as we set about restoring it to it’s full potential, in order to honor and serve survivors of sex trafficking. When survivors come on retreats, we want them to feel comfortable and celebrated as they move forward on their restoration journey. How better to do this than to create a unique surrounding of warmth, elegance and inspiration.

We are looking for supporters and volunteers to help us reach our goal. Here are a few of the positions we are looking for:

  • Designers:  Interior Designers
  • Media:  Videographer and/or editors, graphic art, help with social media.
  • Contractors: plumbers, electricians, construction.

Whether full time, part time or just an hour here or there, we consider our volunteers an integral part of our community.

This project is now COMPLETE!  We want to thank Coast Christian Church and all the volunteers and donors that helped to make this possible.
