(EVERETT, WA), (October 19, 2010) — Mike Manley, Administrator of Sunrise Community Mental Health Services, was recently appointed to the Board for the Snohomish County Emergency Food and Shelter Program (EFSP). He graciously accepted and will be joining in the meetings this month. Mr. Manley is representative of an agency serving persons with disabilities.
Mary Anne Dillon, Senior Regional Director of the Snohomish County YWCA, commented, “Mike has many years of experience in the human services, homeless and affordable housing field. Mike consistently brings keen insights and thought provoking ideas, comments and questions to the table.

The EFSP is responsible for distributing FEMA funds to agencies to provide food, shelter and other aids to individuals and/or families who experience various types of emergencies. The Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program was created in 1983 to supplement the work of local social service organizations within the United States, both private and governmental, to help people in need of emergency assistance. This collaborative effort between the private and public sectors has provided over $3.4 billion in Federal funds during its 27-year history.
“It’s an honor to be asked to serve on this board,” commented Mike Manley. “With my past experiences, I look forward to bringing new perspectives to the table in hopes of making a positive difference in the way we serve the public.”
