Thanks to Vista Paint for donating hundreds of gallons of paint along with Max at Handy Man Masters and the many other volunteers who have transformed the buildings 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.  We would like to thank everyone who has been a part and continues to be a part of making the facility look amazing.

Beautifying grounds

We continue to add wood chips around buildings, install irrigation and plant 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.  Thanks to In-N-Out Burger the process in beginning.

Stone House Campaign


The Stone House was built in 1911 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 backdrop of the Santa Barbara mountains with magnificent ocean views, we are setting out to restore the Stone House to its former glory!

We believe that the greatest days of the Stone House are yet to come as we set about restoring it to its 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.
