Welcome to the Parkinson Association
of Santa Barbara
We offer programs that empower those with Parkinson’s and their Care Partners to be
pro-active in managing their day-to-day lives, working to delay progression, and committing to living well with Parkinson’s. Our shared experiences and triumphs drive everything we do, and strengthen our resolve to spread the message, “You may have Parkinson’s, but Parkinson’s doesn't have you."
We do not have a physical location for PASB. Most of our activities are held at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church. Please send mail to: PASB, PO Box 6254, SB, CA 93160-6254
