PathPoint Gives Yardi Community Partnership Award

PathPoint has honored Yardi with a Community Partnership Award in recognition of the company’s 10 years of support for PathPoint’s programs for adults with disabilities in Santa Barbara.


“Yardi’s generous grants over the past decade have enabled us to bring the latest assistive technology and resources to individuals with disabilities; helping them communicate with their families, access Internet resources, and engage with the world,” said Harry Bruell, PathPoint president/CEO. 

“The difference this has made for these individuals and their families is life-changing,” he said.

“We have a long history of giving back to communities all over the world,” said Gordon Morrell, Yardi’s executive vice president. “We’re honored to partner with PathPoint to help improve the lives of our fellow community members.”

At the awards ceremony in December, PathPoint presented Yardi with an original abstract painting by Elizabeth Blasenstein, a participant in PathPoint’s Community Integration Program.

The integration program is one of the ways PathPoint supports adults with disabilities with stimulating activities, social interaction and vocational training.

Yardi grants also have supported staff training, adaptive art supplies, sensory stimulation equipment, and facility maintenance and upkeep; all key parts of nurturing a path to integration for individuals with disabilities into our community, PathPoint said.

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!
