Thank you for your support. It means everything.

Everyone deserves a helping hand

People with disabilities and their families count on Hillside to provide quality care, independence and integration within our community. Hillside strives to advance the potential of each resident by fostering abilities and creating community.

For our 59 residents, Hillside is home.

The individuals who call Hillside their home need a caring community to survive. Hillside provides them what they need to follow their passions and discover their abilities.

People who have intellectual and developmental disabilities are able to touch hearts and to call others to unity through their simplicity and vulnerability.”

Hillside Looks to the Future…

There are nationwide efforts to remove barriers to community living for people of all ages with disabilities, and Hillside is part of this movement. The Hillside Community Project will transform our model of care by creating a new mixed- abilities neighborhood on our property – the first of its kind in the Santa Barbara area. 

Register for our bi-monthly e-newsletter to find out about upcoming events, recent stories about residents, and more.  Hillside is a happening place, so be a part of the fun!
