PathPoint Hosting Open House for Community Access Program

The May 26 event will be an opportunity to learn more about its services

To share its programs and services with the community, PathPoint is hosting an open house for its Community Access Program from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. May 26 at 2801-A De la Vina St. in Santa Barbara.

Founded in 1964, PathPoint is a local nonprofit organization that provides comprehensive training and support services that empower people with disabilities to live and work as valued members of the community.

Tasha Donovan, CAP’s coordinator, said the afternoon event will be an opportunity for individuals with disabilities, their family members and other interested community members to learn more about the services offered by PathPoint.

“We look forward to sharing information about and providing tours of the Community Access Project,” she said. “CAP provides meaningful activities and engaging social interaction in a safe and nurturing environment for individuals with moderate to severe physical and developmental disabilities.”

One of four Community Access Programs offered in South Santa Barbara County, CAP responds to the needs of people who are nonambulatory or who have close personal care needs. Individuals with disabilities undertake an active role in planning their own services, even if they do not use traditional communication styles. PathPoint has developed ways to understand the needs, preferences and desires of all its participants. CAP provides services in both Santa Barbara and Goleta.

To participate or to receive more information, call Donovan at 805.898.8866. To learn more about PathPoint, click here or e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
