Jessica Buterbaugh, Executive Board of Director

Hi! I'm Josh!  I joined KARE as a Board of Director back in 2014.  I am the Father of a wonderful son and come from a large family with ties to our area.  I'm in charge of our annual event "Kolored by KARE 5K, which brings local runners together for a fun, colorful event that helps raise money for our Organization and a chosen family.  Along with supporting my KARE family, I am very involved and passionate about the Young Living  Foundation.  I have been able to travel with them and serve in Nepal, where I assisted in rebuilding homes for a remove village.  I am scheduled to go to Uganda in 2018.
