Volunteer Training Sessions for Hospice of Santa Barbara Scheduled for Fall

Hospice of Santa Barbara will begin holding fall volunteer training sessions for individuals interested in providing emotional, social and practical support to people with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

Patient-care volunteers play a vital role as part of the HSB Team.

The free training sessions will held at Hospice of Santa Barbara, 2050 Alameda Padre Serra, Suite #100, in Santa Barbara from noon to 3 p.m. on six consecutive Tuesdays, Sept. 29 through Nov. 3.

The application deadline is Sept. 15, and seating is limited.

For more information about signing up and volunteering, call HSB Director of Volunteer Services Nicole Romasanta at 805.563.8820 or visit www.hospiceofsantabarbara.org.

Hospice of Santa Barbara “volunteers” its free professional counseling and care management services those who are experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness or grieving the death of a loved one.

It is also present on six local high school campuses to work with children and teens who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

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!
