Ms. Raneo Chilaka is a retired health education and general science teacher. She taught, coached and inspired thousands of middle and high school students over four decades in New York, NY, and in Harwich, MA, where she retired in 2017. During her tenure, she also chaired the Wellness Department for the Monomoy Regional School District and Harwich Public Schools. Ms. Chilaka currently serves on the board of directors of the Harwich Council on Aging and is a past secretary of the Cape Verdean Multicultural Auxiliary. She holds an undergraduate degree in health and education from Northeastern University and a Master’s degree in health and physical education from Columbia University.

Ms. Stoll has spent her career developing and launching major new initiatives in both nonprofit and corporate sectors.

She holds an MBA from Cornell University.

Rev. Williams is a retired pastor of the Orleans Methodist Church. He serves as convener of the Martin Luther King Action Team of the Nauset Interfaith Association whose mission is justice, particularly on Cape Cod, as it focuses on race relations. . Descended from a line of Methodist ministers stretching back to American slavery, Rev. Williams, like his forebears, has always sought to make social justice the core of his ministry.

The OCHS volunteer board of directors is representative of the communities served by the organization on the Lower and Outer Cape, the majority of whom are OCHS patients.
