Santa Barbara, Calif., January 24, 2018 — The American Red Cross of the Pacific Coast is continuing to provide support to hundreds of residents impacted by the Montecito mudslide. The Red Cross, working with its partner agencies, is committed to making sure that everyone impacted by this disaster is offered resources and a plan for long-term recovery.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Red Cross is providing financial assistance to qualified residents impacted by the mudslide. Those who live in the evacuation zones are encouraged to meet with the Red Cross at the Local Assistance Center to determine if they qualify for financial assistance. Those who have already met with a caseworker should return to the Local Assistance Center for updated information. Those who do not qualify for financial assistance will receive other Red Cross services including access to referrals, snacks and water, clothing vouchers, and health, mental health and spiritual care services.

Caseworkers are available to meet with the public at the Local Assistance Center at Calvary Chapel of Santa Barbara, 1 N. Calle Cesar Chavez, Santa Barbara, CA 93103. The center is open weekdays 11 am-6:30 pm and Saturday 10 am-2 pm. The center is expected to be open until February 3.

Additionally, Red Cross nurses and crisis counselors are available to meet the medical, emotional and spiritual needs of those feeling the impacts of this disaster.

As repopulation continues, the Red Cross will visit neighborhoods to distribute relief supplies, including drinking water and clean up supplies.

Residents may also pick up supplies at multiple sites daily from 8 am-8 pm. Distribution points include 1) US Post Office, 2245 Lillie Ave., Summerland, CA 93067 and 2) Montecito Fire Station #2, 2300 Sycamore Canyon Rd., Montecito, CA 93108.
