In memory of Genny O’Donnell

It is with a broken heart that RHD announces the passing of Genny O’Donnell, the only director RHD’s Coordinated Homeless Outreach Center has ever known, colleague, advocate, and dear friend. Genny passed away unexpectedly this week, and leaves a legacy of passionate devotion to people in need that changed and saved the lives of thousands of people who received support in breaking the cycle of homelessness thanks to Genny.

In lieu of flowers, Genny’s family is asking for donations to assist with the development of a new building for CHOC in her memory.

Genny’s devotion and love for people – especially those who were vulnerable, marginalized, and in need – was evident to everyone who met her. She touched the lives of countless people and taught us so much about compassion, commitment, and passion for working with people in need. She was loved by so many and her loss will be deeply felt at RHD and by all those fortunate enough to have known her.
