Alpha Resource Center of Santa Barbara has announced Joshua Weitzman is its new associate executive director. Weitzman brings some 20 years of experience to Alpha from positions with churches and various nonprofits.

In addition to his work with nonprofits, Weitzman is an ordained pastor.

“We are delighted to welcome Joshua Weitzman to the team at Alpha Resource Center. Joshua has served the mission of the organization as a past board member and officer and brings to his role as associate executive director experience in organizational and strength-based development,” said Kimberly Olson, Alpha's executive director.

Weitzman and his wife Jamie were first introduced to Alpha in 2007 when their third daughter was born with Down syndrome. A few years later, they adopted their son, who also has Down syndrome, from Hong Kong.

Over the years, their family has become advocates for the mission of Alpha; empowering individuals, supporting families and building community.

The Weitzman family has helped with the planning of Alpha events and has been regularly involved with Alpha’s annual Circle of Life Luncheon.

Weitzman first joined the Alpha Resource Center board of directors in 2011 and has served as a member on the development committee, as vice president, and most recently as president.

The Weitzmans have been living in Carpinteria since 2005. They have four children, Sarah, 15; Julia, 13; Hannah, 10; and Jedidiah, 6.

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!
