Steve Warner
President, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Auxiliary, Santa Barbara, California

Steve started volunteering at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital four years ago.  During that time he implemented many innovations in the work Volunteers do in hospitals.  Steve brings a wealth of information on diversity in our communities.  Working with the Pacific Pride Foundation in Santa Barbara, Steve has spoken to groups from high schools, colleges, convalescent homes and places of worship; realizing, that diversity in hospitals included the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community and knowing that some of the volunteers may not have the information or tools tounderstand this diverse community.
