Celebrating 21 Years of Service

Established in 1997, Community Partners in Caring—a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit (ID# 77-0477176) — is a community outreach organization that coordinates volunteers for the purpose of providing free and direct volunteer services to seniors (age 62+) in Santa Barbara County. We provide an array of free support services to low-income seniors that lack the resources to hire assistance and don’t have family/friends that can help.

Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act Notice

As a recipient of federal financial assistance, Community Partners in Caring is subject to the regulations under Title VI and has established policies to maintain compliance with those regulations. Title VI states: “No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

It is against the policy of Community Partners in Caring (CPC) to discriminate against an individual based upon that person’s race, color or national origin. This policy applies to our clients, volunteers, applicants for employment, and current employees.

Title VI complaints may be filed with CPC’s Executive Director, Vilma Contreras who serves as the Title VI Program Coordinator and may be filed by an individual, class, or a third party within 180 calendar days of the alleged discriminatory act. Complaints should be directed to Vilma Contreras and addressed as follows: Community Partners in Caring, ATTN: Vilma Contreras, 120 East Jones Street, Ste 123, Santa Maria, CA  93454.
