As Shelters of Saratoga (SOS) celebrates 20 years of service to the community, they are pleased to announce the addition of three new members to its Board of Directors: Mary Lynn Bradley, Angelo G. Calbone, and Marcy Dreimiller, MBA, SPHR.
“SOS is moving briskly forward to expand its professionalism and capacity. I am delighted to welcome three community leaders as our newest directors,” said John Penzer, Executive Director. “These individuals bring to SOS a wealth of experience, skills and community spirit and we are most fortunate that they possess a strong interest in helping the homeless help themselves.”
The SOS Board of Directors is currently led by President Kelly Reinhart, CPA. “Shelters of Saratoga has been taking great measures to continue to meet an overwhelming demand for our services in these challenging economic times,” said Reinhart.
To date in 2011, 236 individuals have been turned away from the emergency shelter because the shelter was at capacity. In 2010, SOS added a transitional housing pilot program and mobile outreach services to address unmet needs. SOS is actively and
aggressively planning extensive future expansion.
Reinhart continues, “As in the past, we will reach out to the community and its leaders
to support our unique cause. We are grateful for the positive response we have received.”
Bringing their unique perspectives and experiences to the Board, collectively the newly
appointed directors will be charged with promoting the mission of SOS and ensuring that the agency remains a driving force behind preventing homelessness and very actively helping the homeless and at-risk homeless.
