Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia visits Santa Maria
Santa Maria was privileged to have a visit from freshman US Congresswoman Sylvia Rodriguez Garcia, on Monday July 29th, the first day of her summer recess from Congress. Ms.Garcia spent time touring the Bonita House campus and meeting with staff to learn of the mission and programs that define Santa Maria. The restorative justice programs offered to women and their children were particularly highlighted. Led by CEO Nadine Scamp, a discussion after the tour centered around congressional topics including funding for the opioid crisis and other behavioral health related topics. Santa Maria is grateful to the Congresswoman’s keen interest in our work!
