Before coming to HSB, Charles spent seven years with Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara as the director of advancement, and ten years with United Way of Santa Barbara County as the director of special projects. Charles is moved by HSB’s relationship-centric approach to walking with people through the difficult journey of grief and illness.
