The Association for Senior Care has donated bags of useful items and nonperishable foods to the Safe Parking Program in Santa Barbara, https://sbnbcc.org/safe-parking/.

Run by New Beginnings Counseling Center, the Safe Parking Program provides safe and monitored overnight parking for homeless clients, many of whom are seniors.

The donated bags included items chosen specifically for the senior demographic.

Supporting all the seniors in the community, the Association for Senior Care is comprised of multiple agencies and services, providing support to seniors and their families in the greater Santa Barbara area.

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!
