Devereux recently honored supported-living staff member Robert Moran by presenting him with the 2008 Culture of Caring Award.

The annual award recognizes the outstanding personal and professional service of a direct care staff member from each Devereux center across the country, who typifies the spirit of caring that has long been the hallmark of Devereux’s mission and the legacy of its founder, Helena Devereux.

“Bob is considered by his supervisor to be an ‘all-star’ staff member, who can always be depended upon to have the best interest of the clients at heart when making critical decisions regarding their care,” Devereux executive administrator Amy Evans said. “We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated member of the Devereux team.”

Moran has been a member of the Devereux California team since 1986. For 22 years, he has dedicated his career to improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities served by Devereux.

Established in Santa Barbara in 1945, Devereux California is part of the largest nonprofit provider of behavioral health care services in the country, which provides comprehensive services to individuals of all ages who have developmental disabilities and/or psychological, emotional, behavioral or neurological disorders.

Janis Johnson is the external affairs manager for Devereux California.

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!
