Board of Directors

Kathy’s House is governed by a dedicated Board of Directors comprised of community leaders, health care representatives, and family members of Kathy Vogel Kuettner.

The father of Kathy Vogel Kuettner, Dick Vogel, served as Executive Director beginning on July 1, 2001 when Kathy’s House opened, until the summer of 2012. In following the wishes of Kathy, Dick’s vision was to create a safe, comfortable, and affordable place for families and patients to stay within a home-like atmosphere. It was this vision that transformed Kathy’s House into the vital organization that it is today.
