Sean Whaley

Family Service Agency is pleased to welcome its newest board member, Sean Whaley.

Whaley became involved with Family Service Agency in 2013, when he began volunteering with the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program. However, he is no stranger to serving the community; he is a graduate of West Point Military Academy and the son of a longtime special agent in the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Before Whaley settled in Santa Barbara in 2008, the New Jersey native lived in New York, Virginia, Texas and Germany. He is an engineer for Lockheed-Martin and spends his free time as a mentor, football coach and tutor for junior high school students.

Whaley has made a significant impact on his Little Brother, Leo, and he is proud to have joined FSA’s board where he can play a greater role in strengthening the community.

Family Service Agency has long been regarded as one of Santa Barbara County’s most reliable and effective nonprofit organizations. Established in 1899, FSA continues to improve the health and well-being of the community’s most vulnerable children, families and seniors through their transformative and essential programs: Big Brothers Big Sisters, Senior Services, Family Support Services, Youth & Family Behavioral Health and School Counseling Services.

Its programs combine clinical expertise, bilingual and bicultural staff, and close collaboration with other agencies. At FSA, all services are provided free or on a sliding fee/donation scale and no one is denied assistance because of an inability to pay.

— Melinda Johansson is the marketing manager for Family Service Agency.

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!
