Mi Vida, Mi Voz (MVMV) is an initiative of Hospice of Santa Barbara focused on collecting information about community resources in five basic categories: Health; Basic Needs (food, financial support, housing, legal); Mental Health; Children & Families; and Seniors. The initial emphasis was health and basic needs information during COVID-19. MVMV ensures the information is bilingual, accurate, and relevant and partners with trusted networks of community leaders to ensure this information is disseminated through methods already utilized by the Spanish-speaking community.
Mi Vida, Mi Voz (My Life, My Voice) serves as a bilingual resource directory with the aim to ensure local services are accessible to all members of our community regardless of language.
- MVMV’s work also includes our Mi Regalo initiative, a local community collaboration of organizations focused on end-of-life health issues and Advance Care Planning in the Latino community. These organizations include Carpinteria Children’s Project, Casa De La Raza, City of SB Fire Department, Cottage Health, Family Service Agency, Housing Authority of Santa Barbara, Isla Vista Youth Projects, LISTOS, McDermott-Crockett Mortuary, Promotores De Salud Network, Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics, and Santa Barbara Unified School Districts.
- Resources for the Spanish-Speaking community can be found online at: https://mividamivoz.com/. Sign up to receive our bilingual electronic newsletter to receive information regarding available services.
