The Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County received a $10,000 donation from the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians to continue its efforts in reducing homelessness.
“This is an organization that provides crucial legal services to people in need, especially those who may find themselves homeless,” said Vincent Armenta, Tribal Chairman of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians.
Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider also recognizes the importance of the Legal Aid Foundation’s work through its Homeless Education & Legal Project. “I am incredibly pleased to hear that the Chumash tribe has stepped up to support this vital nonprofit to the community as they have so many others,” said Mayor Schneider.
Legal Aid Foundation says their vision is to provide equal access to justice, removing victims of domestic violence from harm’s way, and preventing homelessness among other things.
