Casa Allegra Community Services (CACS) for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, is proud to announce Eny Campos as the next Executive Director beginning January 1, 2020. Eny follows Chris Bonfiglio, long-time executive director and co-founder, who is stepping down after 45 years. CACS selected Ms. Campos after an intensive months-long search process led by a Search Committee which included board and community members and was facilitated by Janssen and Associates Recruiting.
Under Chris Bonfiglio’s dedicated leadership, the agency grew from creating a home and activities for 5 children with severe disabilities to serving up to 53 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities each year with community living and day services. Chris established innovative employment opportunities and was instrumental in developing the model for supported living in California. During her tenure, CACS achieved financial stability despite state budget cutbacks and difficult economic times. CACS anticipates that Eny will leverage these achievements to maintain stability.
Eny has over 20 years of nonprofit management experience with CACS in program direction and direct support for people with disabilities. She will continue leadership of 100 full and part-time staff with a management team. Together, they provide coordinated community-based living and day services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Marin County.
Eny brings with her a passion for the mission, strong vision and values, a deep knowledge of all aspects of the agency, and strong working relationships with clients, families, staff and colleagues.
In speaking of Eny, Chris said, “She exemplifies everything the stakeholders were looking for. Eny is the perfect choice for this agency. I have no doubt that she is the one to bring the mission forward for many years to come.”
CACS Board Member Tim Fewell said, “Eny is a wonderful caring person. I think she will have no trouble at all filling into Chris’ big shoes. There couldn’t have been a better choice.”
Eny lives in Novato with her husband and two children. Eny said, “I am honored to be the one to carry on the legacy of this agency. I will work hard each and every day.”
CACS is grateful for grants from the Buck Family Fund of the Marin Community Foundation and from the Freitas Foundation in support of the CACS Executive Transition. CACS thanks recruiters Jaqueline Janssen, Stacy Nelson and their team.
