Response to shooting in Isla Vista, California

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is grieved to hear of the shooting in Isla Vista, Calif., and has been in immediate communication with our Presbyterian leaders there.

While PDA does not deploy members of the National Response Team (NRT) to their own presbytery, PDA has three National Responders who live and work in Santa Barbara, Calif., and who are actively involved in the response efforts as a part of the Santa Barbara Presbytery's response. They are working alongside their local colleagues, all of whom are providing strong first responses.

Vigils and memorial services will be conducted over the next several days in and around the community. PDA is in regular communication with the presbytery, our partners, and our team members. We stand ready to provide long-term emotional and spiritual support.
