We received several outstanding submissions for this year’s college scholarship. The initial plan was to select one winner, but two entrants stood out for their excellence and impressive dedication to success. Therefore, we decided to award two $500 scholarships this year.
After an overwhelming response and an exceptional pool of applicants, we at NordstrandBlack PC are pleased to announce that this year there will be TWO winners of our $500 college scholarship! The decision to award two scholarships was not initially planned, but the exceptional quality of this year’s applications and the inspiring stories we encountered compelled us to extend our support to an additional student, who will be announced on July 6th, 2023.
Our team at NordstrandBlack PC is truly heartened by the response we received for this year’s $500 college scholarship. The essay prompt asks entrants to tell us what your experiences have taught you about overcoming life’s obstacles. The essays we received were informative, well-written, and deeply moving.

Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital (CRH) was one of four local organizations honored during the 16th annual Santa Barbara Mayor’s Award ceremony by Mayor Cathy Murillo on Thursday, October 28, 2021. They were recognized for their outstanding support of people with disabilities.
On September 12, 2019, Renée Nordstrand, partner at NordstrandBlack PC, and her fellow board members of the Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation hosted a charity gala meant to inspire and empower people with disabilities.
To celebrate this season of giving, NordstrandBlack PC is hosting a Socks & Toiletries Drive for Transition House in Santa Barbara. We invite you to join us and donate to this worthy shelter, which provides temporary housing, food, and supplies for families with nowhere else to go. The drive kicks off on Monday, November 27th and runs until Thursday, March 15th, 2018. Collection dates will occur on the 15th of each month.
It’s tough being a caregiver.
In 2015, approximately 43.5 million Americans provided unpaid care to someone they knew. The value of the services they gave? An estimated $470 billion dollars.
Though there are professional (formal) caregivers who are paid for what they do, most caregivers are informal caregivers—that is, they’re unpaid individuals who assist others with activities of daily living or medical conditions.
On September 25th, Renée J. Nordstrand and her fellow board members of the Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation invite you to attend an educational event focused on caregiving. The event will be held at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort in Santa Barbara at 5:30 p.m.
