Joshua Weitzman has recently been appointed the new executive director at Alpha Resource Center of Santa Barbara, which empowers individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Santa Barbara County.

Weitzman and his wife, Jamie, were first introduced to Alpha in 2007, when their third daughter was born with Down Syndrome. A few years later, they adopted their son, who also has Down Syndrome, from Hong Kong.

Over the years, the Weitzmans have become advocates for the mission of Alpha Resource Center; supporting families, creating opportunities and fostering belonging. Weitzman brings more than 20 years of experience to Alpha from positions with churches, such as The River Community Church,  and various non-profits.
