Project Title: 
Resident scholarship for women pursuing recovery from alcoholism.

Casa Serena has been providing residential care for alcohol and drug addicted women in Santa Barbara for fifty years. They now have room for thirty women and up to seven children at three different sites. As Casa Serena has grown so has the number of women needing their services. One of the greatest barriers to women seeking treatment is their inability to pay for it. This grant alleviated that hurdle for many women and their children.
