Please join us in congratulating Jennifer Rocco, our new Director of Waiver Services. In her role, Jennifer will have responsibility for the day-to-day operations, management, and oversight of the agency’s 24-hour congregate licensed and non-licensed waiver homes, shared living homes, Multi-System Youth programs, and respite services. She will have operational responsibility for all aspects of the program, services, and supports provided by the Waiver staff to ensure the people we support are living their best lives through quality service that also aligns with the mission, vision, and values of Koinonia.
Jennifer has been with Koinonia for over 3 years and has been involved with the growth and expansion of Waiver services, including Shared Living and Multi-System Youth (MSY). Her passion started in this field at a young age while in elementary school when assisting in a special-needs classroom. She began her professional career in the IDD field 19 years ago as a DSP and has since held a variety of leadership positions, most recently as the Associate Director of Waiver Services at Koinonia. Jennifer holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Akron and has completed the ADVANCE Leadership Training through OPRA.
Jennifer is excited to be leading the Waiver team at a time of exciting change and new opportunities for growth!
