Weiss has also served with the Special Olympics of Santa Barbara Leadership Council and is a longtime proponent for the Alpha Resource Center. He is also a contributor to and current board member of Downtown Santa Barbara.

PathPoint is a nonprofit organization founded in 1964 in Santa Barbara to assist people with disabilities and disadvantages in attaining independent living and reaching their fullest potential. Celebrating 50 years in 2014, PathPoint’s central mission is to provide comprehensive training and support services that empower people with disabilities or disadvantages to live and work as valued members of our communities. PathPoint’s nationally-recognized programs predominantly assist participants in establishing themselves within the realms of employment, housing, and developmental training.

Through these fundamental services, PathPoint enables people with disabilities to become integrated, productive members within our communities. Thanks to PathPoint’s programs, over 2,350 people in California each year are supported in their steps to live productive, independent lives within the five counties of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles and Kern.

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!
