Cathedral Square has appointed Liz Genge of Montpelier to the top leadership post of the statewide Support and Services at Home program. Genge will oversee those teams throughout Vermont that provide support and coordinate personalized care and programming for the approximately 5,000 Medicare recipients enrolled in the program.

Genge comes to Support and Services at Home with 20 years’ experience at Downstreet Housing and Community Development in Barre, where she served as director of property management since 2011. An early champion of Support and Services at Home, Genge helped launch the program in Washington and Orange counties 10 years ago and has overseen operations in Downstreet’s housing communities since.

Genge says she felt called to the director position after witnessing the benefits of the Support and Services at Home person-centered approach to health and well-being firsthand.

“I was intrigued from the start with this innovative way to deliver services to individuals right at home while also strengthening community collaborations with our partners,” she said. “I still feel that excitement and enthusiasm about SASH and am proud to lead SASH teams throughout Vermont in building on the program’s many successes.”

Noting that the director position is a challenging role to fill because it encompasses so many responsibilities, Cathedral Square CEO Kim Fitzgerald says that “SASH has really hit the jackpot with Liz. We are so fortunate to have someone of her caliber who has been engaged in SASH from the beginning and has such a deep passion for the vision of SASH.” Genge also brings a wealth of expertise in property and staff management, Fitzgerald said.
