Mission Statement

LEAP: Learn • Engage • Advocate • Partner mitigates the effects of poverty, racism, and trauma by providing high-quality, trauma-informed child care, comprehensive, culturally sensitive family support, and visionary community leadership. We envision a community where children are loved, valued, and respected and families are supported to reach their highest potential.


We were born out of the chaos of the early 1970s in Isla Vista. In the wake of riots and the burning of the Bank of America, the children and families who lived in Isla Vista needed support, strength and resilience. We now proudly support and nurture families across all of Santa Barbara County.

Our primary goal is to provide essential support and resources to families in our community. Our monthly free food distributions are where we need the most help. Each month, we distribute fresh produce and food to our community members in the form of a drive-up distribution. We proudly provide food to nearly 200 families each month, and our impact continues to grow.

Join us in making a difference! As a volunteer, you'll contribute to our ongoing efforts to nurture families, support children, and build a stronger, more resilient community.
