Kat Wright, Executive Director
Ms. Wright joined the Attleboro Area Council of Churches as Executive Director in January of 2010. She and her family moved to Attleboro in June of 2008 from Helena, Montana. While in Montana she was instrumental as a Regional Organizer for “Let Justice Roll,” an organization that helped build and mobilize faith communities in support of raising the minimum wage both state and nationwide. She also served as Special Projects Coordinator and Outreach Coordinator of the Montana Comprehensive Cancer Control Program where she worked to develop and implement a strategic plan and support materials for recruitment, retention, and orientation for the large statewide volunteer coalition. Kat loves to work with faith communities putting faith into action, coming together across their diversity to serve the least in our communities.
Ms. Wright holds a B.F.A. degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder. She lives in Attleboro with her husband, Rev. Vern and three children (Owen, River and Brynn).
Beth Rossi, Administrative Assistant/Office Guru
Beth is the smiling face you see as you enter the office. She has been the Administrative Assistant here at the Council of Churches since 2008. Beth provides the office with clerical support but more importantly, she provides the people we serve with much needed help and guidance. She is an experienced social worker and a valuable resource to those who come to us in need. Her passion for serving never flags, Beth can always be counted on to keep the priorities straight. Beth loves chocolate and yellow roses and is an active member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Pamela Tarallo, Food n’ Friends Program Coordinator
Pamela has been with the Council for 11 years as the Food ‘n Friends Program Coordinator. She oversees the six free daily kitchens, three Family Cafe’s and the Summer Kids Cafe. Pam is the quiet miracle worker, the behind the scenes gal. But don’t let that quiet exterior fool you – this is the woman who can handle 27 spinning plates in the air at once!! She oversees most of our 500+ volunteers, 12 complete kitchen teams, ordering, special events, distribution, storage, and is currently working closely with Kat to develop a Hunger Education Curriculum for Grades 1 – 5. Her favorite thing to say is, “I spend the money, not make it!” (Thank goodness she is Bargain Shopper Extraordinaire!)
