CILCP Welcomes New Employees to the Team
Kate Thweatt began her position as Field Supervisor II for HomeCare for Living Well in January. Kate handles many tasks including hiring and supervising all direct care workers or care attendants, managing payroll, coordinating schedules and handling new consumer referrals.
“I field calls from consumers, support coordinators and care attendants ensuring that every person is responded to in a timely manner,” Kate explained. “Along with my co-workers, I am on-call and spend time in the field with consumers who need assistance.”
According to Kate, CILCP’s mission drives her passion to make a difference.
“I have always been an avid human rights activist,” she said. I love knowing that I make a small difference in someone’s life by being able to provide them with HomeCare services. My hope is that our consumers are able to live well with the aid of our care attendants.”
Kate added, “Although this is a challenging position because our work is never truly done, I get to work with amazing people who are supportive both in and out of the workplace.”
According to Ginny Rogers, Director of Community Services, Kate is an asset to CILCP and its consumers.
“Kate believes in providing quality services to the people we support, and the best way to ensure quality services is to provide excellent training to HomeCare attendants,” Ginny said. “Kate believes it’s important that we ensure that the attendants we hire are the same quality of worker we would hire for our own families.”
Kate earned a Bachelor of Arts in English with a minor in Education, Psychology and Theological studies from Houghton College and a master’s degree in Theological History and Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary. She comes to CILCP with supervisory experience and was a past part-time attendant.
A self-proclaimed beach bum, Kate enjoys spending time in the sun and sand, reading theological history material, cooking and hanging out with family and friends. She lives in Carlisle with her domestic partner, three kiddos and a loveable geriatric cat named Elli-Mae.
Every organization benefits greatly from an Office Manager who tends to wear many hats. In January, Vince Picciotti was appointed this important position which lends support to all departments and staff. He also oversees office logistics and plays a key role in maintaining fluid operations within the agency.
“Vince is friendly to everyone,” said Cindy Young, Director of Fiscal Services. “He makes our office feel warm and caring. He also is great at researching the best deals and saving the CILCP money,” she added.
Vince holds a Bachelor of Science in Education from West Chester University and is a licensed Cosmetologist in four states. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with family, traveling and photography.
“I really enjoy my position at CILCP,” Vince said. “My favorite part of my job is experiencing the unity of our team working towards the positive progression and welfare of our consumers.”
