Hospice of Santa Barbara Needs Bilingual Mentors

The I Have a Friend Mentor Program at Hospice of Santa Barbara Inc. is in need of bilingual and bicultural volunteers.

Mentor volunteers are adults who experienced the loss of a parent or sibling as a child. They are trained and matched with children who have experienced a similar loss. Mentors help these children understand that not only are they normal, but that their lives can be good again and that they can grow up to be happy and successful people.

The mentor volunteer training sessions begin in September. Hospice of Santa Barbara is hoping that good mentor matches from the community will come forward to help these children recover from their painful loss.

If you would like to volunteer for the mentor program, call Joy Janssen at Hospice of Santa Barbara at 805.563.8820.

Daniella Elghanayan of SurfMedia Communications represents Hospice of Santa Barbara.

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!
