Bilingual Volunteers Needed for Vaccine Clinics

By Giving List Staff   |   March 16, 2021

As vaccination efforts begin ramping up, Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics will be holding vaccine clinics more frequently. Please contact Taryn Ouellette at (805) 963-1174 if you are interested in becoming a bilingual vaccine clinic volunteer. Right now there are two a week at various locations, but they hope to ramp up to five a week. 65% of patients are Spanish speakers. Over the last two years, SB Neighborhood Clinics have served 30,000 patients, which means 60,000 patients will need to be vaccinated.

A Community Treasure

“For 49 years, the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics have been a cornerstone of our community. They provide essential and compassionate care to anyone, and partner with myriad other entities to ensure a connection and continuity of care. As I look to the future, the need for healthcare is great. Please join our family in supporting this critical community treasure.”

Filling the Gap

Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics doesn’t turn patients away. As a result, the Federally-Qualified Health Care Center runs high medical bills, roughly $2.5 million a year.

To fill this gap, Neighborhood Clinics lean on individual donations. One way to get involved individually or by joining our “Good Neighbors” who commit to donations of $1,000 a year earmarked for where the funds are needed most.
