KATONAH, N.Y. -- After six years of helping residents and neighbors in need, Sherry Wolf, the executive director of the Community Center of Northern Westchester, has decided to retire.
Since 1992, the center has been helping needy residents by sharing the essentials of living. With the support of 34 community partners, and the generosity and volunteer power of residents from all over Northern Westchester, the center now offers food and clothing, as well as other programs designed to ease the burden of families in need in 38 communities in Northern Westchester.
“I have accomplished what I set out to do,” said Wolf. “I am leaving a Center that is now broadly advancing our mission to help neighbors in need with innovative, effective services and programs and a terrific team of skilled and committed staff and volunteers. It has been a great pleasure to lead the Center and work with such committed people.”
Clare Murray, the Center's long-serving assistant director, has been named Interim Executive Director. Murray said that it has been a privilege for her to work with Wolf, and she hopes to carry forward her commitment and inspiration.
"The Center’s board thanks Sherry for her many years of highly valuable contributions to the Center, and we wish her well in her retirement." said Board President Christine Meyer. Fran Dowling, long-time Board member and former Board President added, “Sherry has tirelessly and devotedly served the Community Center for over 18 years as a Board member, President of the Board and Executive Director. She has efficiently and effectively taken the Center in new directions, always adhering to its mission and keeping the needs and dignity of its clients in the forefront of her thinking and planning.”
