Board of Directors
Shaun Barbeau - President: Shaun helped to form The Rescue Crew in 2016 with his family because he realized the need in their community. His upbringing and life experiences encouraged him to approach each person and family's situation individually while focusing on developing a solution to their struggles and ultimately rescuing futures. He and his wife have used their home and their basement as housing and transitional space for many people and families over the years. Shaun has acted in every role in the organization. He has a deep background spanning decades in fundraising for non-profit organizations as well as media and marketing. His objectives will include applying this expertise to help procure corporate and individual strategic partners to fully amplify all the immediate and long-term efforts of The Rescue Crew.
Thomas Pankratz - Vice President & Fundraising Board Director: Tom's professional journey has given him the opportunity to work in a number of different fields including art and design, business development, sustainable energy, entertainment, investment, construction, and marketing. It is his dream to pool his experiences, resources and relationships to create possibilities for those less fortunate and ultimately reduce homelessness.
Andrea Schell - Executive Board Member & Accounting Chair: Andrea has seen firsthand how mentoring, access to employment and financial support can help those in the community that are at risk of homelessness. Andrea and her husband own and operate a transportation company. In her spare time she enjoys listening to music, going to Widespread concerts, CG Exercise Class, and spending time with her family and friends.
Danielle Bordonaro - Executive Board Member & Secretary: Danielle has been an executive administrative assistant for more than a decade.

Lilli O'Neal is a one of The Rescue Crew's Advisory Board Directors and the proud wife of Fredrick O'Neal. She is also the loving mother of 3 young adults. Our daughter Miss China 21 and our sons Adrian 25 & Corey 27. I have spent my life in the service industry, from nursing homes to Inn and Spa's to managing entire households. Most importantly I have spent a large amount of my life with my son's struggling in and out of jail and seeing no programs to help them function on the outside successfully. I am very blessed to be a part of The Rescue Crew. "What we think about we bring about"
