Friendship Center Goleta

Come Meet Us

Enrolling at Friendship Center is easy—after a conversation by phone, our Family Services staff can arrange first for a tour (either with or without the prospective member), and then a FREE trial visit. This is a chance for the prospective member to spend part of the day at Friendship Center to try it out, and for our staff to determine how our program can best meet the individual’s needs.

We will assist with any paperwork necessary and help you work out a schedule to fit your family’s needs. If you are interested in enrolling your loved one in any of Friendship Center’s programs, please contact:

GOLETA: Tracy Cohn, (805) 845-7454
MONTECITO: Luciana Mitzkun, (805) 969-0859

Program Fees

We are dedicated to providing affordable care, so our Family Services staff works with each family to agree upon a daily fee, based on their income level. Connections, our weekly class for those with Early Memory Loss, has a daily fee. Like our day services, this program includes lunch. Transportation can be arranged with Easy Lift online at or by phone at (805) 681-1181. Please contact Tracy or Luciana for more information.


Friendship Center’s contract with the Veterans Administration allows eligible veterans to attend our day program up to 5 days per week, free of charge, including Connections.
