Brenda Coppock was working at Milford Senior Center as the Program Coordinator when Daphne Brumley, the former Executive Director, left her position to pursue a position at Nationwide Healthcare. After Brumley’s departure, Coppock was appointed Acting Executive Director by the board and on January 15, 2019 she accepted the position officially.

“I think I am a good fit for this position,” Coppock said. “I am here for our members because, without them, I would not be here. I look forward to seeing all the warm and welcoming smiles on our member’s faces when they enter the center.”

Coppock was born n Milford but raised in Dover. She graduated from Dover High School and attended Wesley College, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Management/Marketing. Most of her career, she worked in the management field. She moved to Milford in November after building a new home. Coppock has two granddaughters, Laylia and Lilyana, and shares her home with her “darling dachshund puppy, Doxie Lynn.”

Coppock believes her biggest challenge will be raising enough money to replace the roof on the Senior Center. She also feels that seniors today are faced with many challenges.

“Loneliness, hunger, transportation issues and many more,” Coppock said. “We are here to provide a safe place where they can eat and be merry. We provide, through grants and donations, a hot nutritious breakfast for members. We also house the Meals on Wheels program. This program provides a hot and nutritious lunch as well as homebound meals for approximately 90 residents in Milford and the surrounding area.”

Goals Coppock has set for herself include applying for grants and doing as much fundraising as she can to keep the center running smoothly. In addition to the new roof, the Senior Center needs repairs to their parking lot and the outside of the building needs to be repainted. She also plans to be as active as possible in the community to help spread the word about the many services offered by the Milford Senior  Center.
