Why Support GFR? 

Why Support GFR? 

Gauchos for Recovery at UC Santa Barbara is a safe, supportive community for students in recovery or seeking recovery from addiction. Learn more about our program here. We welcome all students at UCSB and SBCC, alumni, and community members. There are no requirements for participation in meetings or events. Gauchos for Recovery is supported by UCSB Student Health and the Alcohol & Drug Program, but we rely on donors like you to keep this life-changing and life-saving resource open. Help ensure that this resource can thrive by making a gift today. 

We are thankful for our generous community supporters!
