POTTSTOWN, PA, March 15, 2023 – The board of directors appointed Jacqui Good, former director of development and communications, as the executive director of the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities. Good follows long-time executive director, Barbara Wilhelmy, under whose leadership the Cluster experienced significant growth. “We are sad to see Barbara go, but wish her well in retirement,” said Roberta Body, board president. “We are fortunate to be able to have a seamless transition with Jacqui, who is well-poised to face the challenges for the next phase of the Cluster.”
Good is a Pennsylvania native who has worked with nonprofits since 1992, in Philadelphia, Berks, and Montgomery Counties. Her career has included fundraising, project management, communication, and operations. Since coming to the Cluster in 2020, she has doubled revenue from non-government grants and gifts. She has also been a champion for the Cluster’s work in diversity and inclusion. “It is my strong belief that if I am effective in recognizing and supporting our dedicated staff, they will be able to do their best possible work for our clients and our community,” Good said. “Together we will work to see what needs remain unmet to help our neighbors move beyond crisis and into self-sufficiency.”
She has a master’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Good currently lives in Lancaster County with her spouse and animal family in the 1932 home that was built for her grandmother. She is the primary caregiver for her 90-year-old father, who lives close by. She spends her commute devouring audiobooks.
The Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities was founded in 1967 by a coalition of churches wanting to address hunger and now operates as an independent nonprofit. In 2014, the Cluster began offering services to house the homeless or those at risk of becoming homeless in Montgomery County. Education and support programs have been added to help clients transition to self-sufficiency. In 2022, the Cluster served 4,452 households from our food pantry and reviewed 2,979 requests for help to prevent eviction. Our housing team works with over 400 landlords to establish stable tenants, making the Cluster an important link in the long-term success of affordable housing property owners.
