The team at Bertling Law Group believes in giving back to our community. We support several local and nationwide organizations that engage in a wide range of important issues. Our attorneys and staff members enjoy donating our volunteer services and financial support to causes we feel passionate about. Here are a few of our favorite community service projects.
The Soldier’s Project
Bertling Law Group is dedicated to holding the Veterans Affairs accountable for medical malpractice involving veterans and their families. But, we look beyond the immediate legal case to understand what our clients’ need to fully recover. We are proud to support The Soldiers Project which provides important resources for veterans and their loved ones.
Paws for Purple Hearts
Paws for Purple Hearts combines two of our biggest passions, helping veterans and helping animals. This one-of-a-kind organization matches service members and veterans with service dogs that have been specifically trained in Warrior Canine Therapy. These special dogs provide assistance and therapy to wounded warriors who suffer from trauma-related conditions and mobility challenges related to PTSD, TBI and other medical issues. Our firm provides regular financial backing to this important organization.
This humanitarian and faith-based organization offers programs to the poorest of the poor and children in the greatest of need. Compassion International is devoted to helping children of all faiths, cultures, backgrounds and races by providing them with education, shelter and food.
Doctors Without Walls: Santa Barbara Street Medicine
This volunteer, non-profit organization provides free medical care to the most vulnerable men and women in Santa Barbara County through an innovative brand of health care called “street medicine.”
Santa Barbara Rescue Mission’s Bethel House
During his tenure as president of the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, Peter Bertling led a capital campaign to build the Bethel House, a faith-based residential rehabilitation facility exclusively for women. The treatment center provides women with a safe and nurturing space and a 12-month recovery program that follows the 12-step model.
Santa Barbara Rescue Mission’s Men’s Recovery Program
Peter Bertling was instrumental in helping the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission’s Men’s Recovery Program obtain state licensing. The residential facility is now recognized as one of the best and most effective treatment program in the state. The 12-month faith-centered program follows the 12-step model to guide men to recovery.
Community Arts Music Association: CAMA
