The grand opening comes shortly after founder Rona Barrett celebrated her 80th birthday. For Barrett, the living facility is the crowning achievement of more than 16 years of hard work.

The foundation said over 900 low-income seniors applied to live in one of the 60 new independent living units on the campus.

Special guests at Friday’s ribbon cutting included members of the housing authority of Santa Barbara and U.S., State and local officials.
