who we are


You are not alone. We are here. We care. We can help.

Since our doors opened in 1982, Villa Majella (Vi-la Ma-jel-a) of Santa Barbara has supported hundreds of women 18 and over, in their decision to carry their babies to term under difficult situations.  Through our maternity home, we equip and empower pregnant women for the future by offering them a safe, wholesome environment,  pregnancy care, education, and guidance whether they choose to personally parent or lovingly select an adoptive home.  

Our professional staff serves to inform, encourage, and assist our clients by providing them with extensive services within a safe and nurturing environment that fosters their physical, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being.  We are a non-profit and non-denominational organization, funded largely by local foundations and individual donations.
