The Santa Barbara Association of Realtors Young Professionals Network teamed up with Habitat for Humanity for its A Brush with Kindness program in April.

Habitat for Humanity of Southern Santa Barbara County is a nonprofit committed to building strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

Habitat for Humanity partners with low-income individuals and families in southern Santa Barbara County to build or improve a place they can call home.

Habitat homeowners build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. With their help, these homeowners achieve the support and independence they need to build a better life for themselves and their families.

YPN committee members Cheyenne Hawks, David Magid, Jordan Robinson, Brittany Lough, Arielle Assur and Justin Dees met up in Carpinteria, ready to put their love, sweat and energy into the project. The YPN began the day scrubbing and washing the outside of the house. Once dry, the YPN began to mask and paint around the entire home.

During this process, Dees spotted that the fence was broken and began to repair and repaint the fence. This ended up being a huge help to the property owner for now she could let her dog roam freely in the backyard without the worry of losing him.

The Young Professionals Network is focused on becoming exceptional members of their community by demonstrating a high level of professionalism and volunteering for causes they feel passionate about.

Next up on the agenda for the YPN is a beach cleanup, which was a very successful project last year.

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!
