Caity (forever) Young joined the Friendship Center in April, 2019 as a Program Specialist/ Connections instructor. She is a Santa Barbara native but has also lived in Puerto Rico and Spain. She moved to San Francisco in her early twenties, then to Sonoma County in 1980. She worked as a dental assistant, then was employed at Hewlett-Packard for nearly 25 years. Caity returned to Santa Barbara in 2008 to care for her mother. She bought a home in “no-leta” Santa Barbara and is very happily employed at the Friendship Center in Montecito, where both of her parents attended the Day Program. She have a fabulous son and daughter-in-law, who are parents to her beautiful granddaughters. She is also mama to a sweet rescue dog, Pepe, and Tortoise shell cat named Josephine. She paints in my spare time (mostly abstracts).
Everyone who walks through the doors of FC immediately becomes Caity’s family and are treated with the utmost respect and love.
