We are a group of Santa Barbara County residents who are 100% devoted to supporting and raising awareness about our local service men and women.
There are several groups and organizations that provide great services to our veterans, but operate under the radar and generally go unnoticed.
Santa Barbara Veterans Foundation (SBVF) works hard to raise funds to keep the programs going and helping our local vets!
No one receives a salary and all funds raised by SBVF stay and support Veterans within Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura County..
