Carol Kallman has been elected president of Alpha Resource Center of Santa Barbara’s Board of Directors.

Kallman is a Santa Barbara native who was first introduced to Alpha as a small child when her parents, Bob and Ruth Kallman, were involved in the early days of Alpha.

She continued to spend much of her childhood in Alpha activities with her brother Cliffy, who had intellectual disabilities from a young age.

Kallman has been a volunteer in the Santa Barbara community for the past 40 years and is currently involved in Channel City Club, Santa Barbara Zoo, Santa Barbara Yacht Club Women and Santa Barbara Junior League Sustainers.

She was recognized as volunteer of the year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (2016) and Alpha Resource Center (2015) for her outstanding volunteerism and commitment to making the community a better place.

Since becoming more involved with Alpha, she has been on the board of directors for seven years and has served as vice president and chair of the development committee.

Kallman said she is honored to be the chair of Alpha’s 65th Anniversary Celebration in September and is excited to share the success of Alpha with the community.

She is a graduate of Santa Barbara High School and received a bachelor of science in business administration from Cal Poly.

Alpha Resource Center was founded in 1953. It serves some 2,200 families, providing support for families with children with intellectual and developmental disabilities of all ages and owns and operates three thrift stores.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
