United Way Hosting Annual United for Literacy Open House

United Way of Santa Barbara County will host its fourth annual United for Literacy Open House from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at United Way, 320 E. Gutierrez St. in Santa Barbara.

The cost is free. RSVP required to [email protected] or 805.965.8591.

The event offers a hands-on look at United Way’s many different educational programs, ranging in focus from reading and math to financial stability and parent engagement.

UWSBC will also be launching a new pilot program in April, the Learning Service Center, which will offer homework help and tutoring, as well as access to books and Common-Core aligned technology tools.

United Way’s staff, educators and program partners will be able to answer your questions about the programs and United Way.

— Kerstin Padilla is an assistant marketing director for the United Way of Santa Barbara County.

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!
