Welcome Home of Chattanooga announces two new additions, Amy Boulware, LAP MSW as the new board chair and Sarah Quattrochi as the first development director.

Ms. Boulware brings with her three decades of serving elders, people with disabilities and their families through advocacy and geriatric and special needs care coordination. She has a unique position as a Tennessee Licensed Advance Practice Social Worker in a local corporate law firm. She currently serves on the Tennessee Governor’s Traumatic Brain Injury Advisory Council and is a past president of the state of Tennessee Health Care Social Workers Association. Ms. Boulware said she believes in participating in community service and lives by the philosophy that we must all perform acts of kindness to perfect or repair the world in which we live.

Ms. Quattrochi has worked in the nonprofit arena for 20 years and brings experience in community partnerships, fundraising, event planning, marketing, and grant writing. She said she is excited to use her skills to help Welcome Home develop deeper relationships with healthcare and community partners as well as cherished volunteers and donors.

John Kerns, Welcome Home’s past chair, said, "I am thrilled that Sarah has joined Welcome Home. She's an accomplished development professional, and I'm eager to watch her help guide our organization to the next level."

Welcome Home of Chattanoooga’s mission is to provide shelter, healing and compassionate end of life care for those in need; one of only two hospice homes in Tennessee.

"We are a young organization that is excited about our future, growing and serving our community well," said Sherry Campbell, founder and director. "We are grateful for Amy to agree to serve our organization in leadership as our Board Chair for 2020. We are very happy to have Sarah on board to help us with development and growth. And we are very thankful to the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga for supporting this new position through an Innovation Grant."
