Shelter Services Manager
Hello, I’m Amanda OKane. In May of 2022 I became Family Promise of Greater Beloit’s Shelter Services Manager. One of my roles is to provide case management for our guests. I was drawn to Family Promise because of their work with families experiencing homelessness. I enjoy working with all ages of guests, from the tiniest of infants to the seasoned older adult.
I graduated from University of Wisconsin Whitewater in 2017, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Social Work. During my college career, I served as an intern in a 25-bed homeless shelter where I learned of the homeless response system in Rock County. Shortly after graduation, I was hired at that shelter; first, as Case Manager and later Operations and Volunteer Coordinator.

In December 2020, I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in psychology, and I’ve spent the time since I graduated working in various settings as a mental health clinician and mentor. I’ve since taken on this position to use my knowledge and skills to help my community. I enjoy reading, spending time in nature, and going to concerts in my free time.
