Officers and Boards of Directors

 

The members of both our Boards of Directors lend their time, leadership, and business experience to help raise awareness of Blossom Hill, and of the needs of people with disabilities throughout the communities we serve.

  • The Blossom Hill, Inc., Board oversees the organization’s business and operations.
  • The Blossom Hill Foundation Board focuses primarily on events and fundraising.

If you are interested in helping ensure that individuals with profound mental and physical disabilities continue to get the quality of care they deserve, we would love to have you serve on one of our Boards.
