Barbara Isemann

Founder, Director

Involved with OOWH Since:

Founder

Background and Role:

My background is in academic pharmacy. I retired in 2018, but answered the community’s request to start this nonprofit. I’ve depended a lot on my board and OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence to gain the skills needed to direct this company….but mostly I work one day at a time trying to fulfill what I believe is God’s plan for me today.

Why are you devoting time to OOWH?

Persons struggling with substance use disorder face monumental barriers to getting their lives back on track. Recovery housing made the difference for my daughter. She believes that everyone deserves the second chance opportunity that recovery housing provides…and I’m trying to help realize that…one person at a time.

Karen Vanover

Chairman of the Board

Involved with OOWH Since:

2019

Background and Role:

My background and degree are in accounting. With over thirty years in the field, I bring that experience to the organization. I have been lucky enough to work with our founders, Barbara and Robert Isemann, in a variety of capacities from cleaning the homes to facilitating some of the organizing of the nonprofit.

Why are you devoting time to OOWH?

Eight years ago, I lost my oldest son Zachary to heroin and fentanyl overdose. A crushing experience that any parent can imagine. He was at his most positive during his time in recovery housing. I am lucky to be a part of helping provide that opportunity to others.
