Nonprofit of The Week: CALM
CALM's mission is to prevent, assess, and treat child abuse in Santa Barbara County.
CALM has been a leader in developing a variety of trauma-informed, evidence-based programs and services that effectively treat child abuse and promote healing, as well as programs successful in preventing abuse through family strengthening and support. Services are provided to all in both Spanish and English, at sliding scale or free of charge if needed; no one is turned away due to inability to pay.
CALM continues to be the only non-profit in Santa Barbara County that specializes in the prevention and treatment of child abuse.
Their services are divided into five departments:
- Early Childhood Prevention and Intervention
- Parenting and Family Programs
- Childhood Trauma Treatment
- Intensive Family Service
- Community Strengthening Collaborations
The number of substantiated cases of neglect or abuse in Santa Barbara County has increased significantly in the last decade. Visit http://calm4kids.org to donate and learn more.
