Judith H. Reilly, Executive Director of Compeer
Judy recently joined the Compeer of the Mohawk Valley family. She has a passion for providing high-quality service, and is extremely excited about the benefits that consumers, volunteers, and the community reaps from the program. Previously, Judy worked for the Girl Scouts - Foothills Council, Inc. focusing on membership services, program delivery, and product sales.
Judy was nominated by Tracy Black who writes: Judy is a tremendous supporter of everyone in our community, but especially those dealing with the challenges of mental illness. Her leadership at Compeer has been an inspiration. When their budget was cut by over 60%, she found a way to keep many of the services available to the people they aid and support. She was the driving force behind Compeer's subsequent alliance with the Center for Life and Recovery, bringing much needed support and funding to the programs Compeer is able to offer. She generously offers her time and support to many organizations, and can always be counted not only to be the first to volunteer, but to also rally the troops to a cause. She spent many years leading the Foothills Girl Scout Council, influencing the lives of countless young women who still count her as friend. She has many, many friends and supporters who recognize her leadership, devotion, kindness and great good humor. Please consider her an exemplary candidate for Community Peacemaker.
