Our People

Our Volunteer Director, Lisa Koeppel,  is responsible for day-to-day management of the program, including working directly with participants, agency and shelter coordination, greater Danbury community relations, grant writing and compliance with all regulatory requirements. Her work is complemented by our Volunteer Case Manager, Lisa Srenaski, who works directly with the participating families, helping to outline their goals, implement the necessary steps for success, and monitor progress along the way.

A volunteer Board of Directors, made up of individuals from various communities, is charged with overall direction and oversight of the program including the vital fundraising necessary to sustain Amos House’s mission. The Board meets on a monthly basis with the Director to discuss policy and develop short and long range planning including fundraising, facilities, publicity, personnel and financing. Board members serve two-year terms and are an important part of the success of the program.
