BONNIE ROTH - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Bonnie has been with the Power House since 1995. Serving first as a volunteer, Bonnie now serves as Executive Director. She also leads the Power House's collaboration with the Drug and Alcohol Consortium of Allen County, in which she works to educate the Power House youth on the dangers of using/abusing drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.

MATTHEW KENNEDY - DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMMING AND STUDENT RELATIONS Matthew is the proud husband of Paige Kennedy and father of a little girl, Chandler. I have served as the volunteer youth pastor at Impact Community Church the last 6 years. I have admired the Power House and its impact on our community’s youth for the last 25 years. This truly is my dream job! It is a total honor to now be on the team here. My vision for this new role is to share Christ with the youth of New Haven, and beyond. If you have the same vision let’s partner and empower the next generations to love each other well. Let’s build up the kingdom in our community!
Bailey Lucas - PFW INTERN My name is Bailey Lucas and I am a Senior in the Human Services Department at Purdue Fort Wayne. I recently got engaged and plan to get married in October of 2023. A little bit about what I am interested in career wise, I have a huge love for people, especially those struggling with life! I am very passionate about children who have trauma and the Power House has allowed me to spend time with a lot of teenagers who are struggling with life for various reasons. I hope to go into some form of case work with either children or those struggling with addiction. I am excited to continue to intern at Power House and learn more about the inside workings of this awesome youth center!
