Assemblyman Das Williams and the Franklin Service Center are hosting a Community Open House to introduce this new central location of community services to Eastside families.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to noon this Saturday at Franklin Elementary School, 1111 E. Mason St. in Santa Barbara. A ribbon-cutting will be held at 11 a.m.

The Franklin Service Center includes organizations that have long-served the Eastside community as well as new services that will be located at the Franklin Elementary School.

There will be free produce, free dental screenings and Covered California enrollment counselors from the Santa Barbara County Department of Public Health.

Other participants include the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, Santa Barbara City College, WIC, Domestic Violence Solutions, Cal Fresh, California Rural Legal Assistance and many more.

“These are vital services to any community, so we are very fortunate to have this new center available to Eastside families," Williams said. "I encourage all neighbors to join us at this kick-off event.”

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!
