Hello, I'm Kody Allen- Sambrano
"I am a Wyoming native. I was born here in Casper, but grew up in Douglas, until I came back about 6 years ago to attend Casper College. I have followed many career paths including EMT, Youth Worker, and even a reporter for KCWY News 13, but I didn't enjoy any of them as much as I love serving the Casper Community through Joshua's! It is simply such a rewarding job, and working with an amazing board and even better volunteers makes it that much more amazing.
I have a lot of volunteer and community service experience; serving as a CASA volunteer, the Victims Services Unit volunteer, and even the president of Joshua's! When I'm not working on fundraisers or programs, I love to hike, watch movies, or volunteer at other organizations.
I am so excited to be able to take over Joshua's and continue to grow our programs and services to fit the needs of those in Casper. If you ever have questions or suggestions for Joshua's, please reach out to me!"
How long have you been a part of Joshua's?
"I have been with Joshua's for 3 years now. I started back in 2018 as a member at large on the board. Later, in 2020, I became the board vice-president and then president. I took over as Executive Director when our previous director stepped down in December of 2020."
Why did you get involved with Joshua's?
"I have always loved serving my community in any way I could, so when I was invited to join the board I jumped at the chance! And I did so again when I was offered the Executive Director position. I saw the good Joshua's does for this community and wanted to continue and expand the services it provides."
What do you see for Joshua's in the future?
"I want to continue to expand Joshua's programs to make sure that we are meeting the hunger needs of all Natrona County residents. I want to continue our summer breakfast program, our birthday basket programs, and see what programs we can expand upon to help the homeless population in Casper. Joshua's in this the perfect position to help end hunger in Natrona County by partnering with community agencies and businesses to ensure that every single person has food in their bellies and on their tables. Together we can conquer food insecurity!"
