Helping Hands, part of the Dorothy D. Rupe Certified Nursing Assistant and Home Health Aide Program, provides financial assistance for students that helps cover expenses such as child care, personal health care or car repairs so they can remain in the program. Helping Hands strives to provide a safety net so students can successfully complete the program.
The Certified Nurse Aide and Home Health Aide programs are gateways into the nursing programs at Santa Barbara City College which provides Santa Barbara County with a steady, well-trained and educated healthcare work force.
The Association of Senior Care is a group of health care professionals in Santa Barbara County engaged in providing services across the health care continuum. The organization supports not just the CNA/HHA program, but also provides support for the Personal Care Attendant program, located at the Wake Center. The Association, which meets monthly, seeks to engage in community outreach for educational and charitable purposes, as well as to support and enhance the communication and linkage within the health care delivery system.
