welcome Erin Reilly – our new coordinator

We welcome Erin Reilly to our team here at Goshen Community Care and Hospice! We look forward to working with you!

I am very excited to have the opportunity to serve as the Goshen Community Care and Hospice Coordinator.

My name is Erin and I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I grew up in Goshen and live here with my daughters, Rita and Brooke.  Rita is a freshman at SUNY Morrisville, studying Equine Business Management.  Brooke is a 4th grader at Goshen Center School. We live with our 2 dogs, 3 Guinea pigs, horse and flock of chickens and ducks.

I am a volunteer EMT with the Goshen Fire Company and serve as the Secretary for the Company.  I also work at the firehouse doing maintenance and custodial duties.  I was just re-elected to the Recreation Commission for my 4th term. Brooke and I are communicants of St. Thomas of Villanova church and I help teach the GIFT program for religious education. 

My girls and I enjoy volunteering for various events and programs around town, especially during the fair at the American Legion booth and library book sale tent.  We are always up for an adventure and enjoy the various hiking trails and outdoor activities Goshen has to offer.  I look forward to meeting everyone and serving the needs of the community.
