The Santa Barbara branch of Broadview Mortgage made sure 32 foster children felt extra special this holiday season with a old-time trolley tour of Santa Barbara’s holiday lights and decorations.


The local mortgage company worked with the Foster Parents Association of Santa Barbara County to provide the seasonal outing along with a personalized gift to each child. 

The Foster Parents Association is a nonprofit organization that offers training, support groups, mentoring and resources for foster, adoptive and kinship parents throughout Santa Barbara County. 

“This is our second year doing this and it just melts your heart! Santa even came from the North Pole to hand out the presents,” said Kelly Marsh, branch manager of Broadview Mortgage’s Santa Barbara office and organizer of the holiday lights tour. “Thank you to my wonderful team for being part of this. We look forward to making it our holiday tradition.” 

Broadview Mortgage Corp. has been in business since 1988. The Orange County-based, family-owned business provides residential loan programs to serve all of California.

The Santa Barbara office is located at 1826 State Street.

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!
