New Executive Director Announcement

On behalf of the Board of Directors of University Settlement I would like to announce that we have selected Patricia Jacobs as our organization’s new Executive Director, effective November 17th, 2014.

Patricia has held senior roles in diverse, community-based, not-for-profit organizations throughout her career. She comes to us from Moorelands Community Services, which she has led as Executive Director for the past fifteen years. At Moorelands, Patricia organized major capital fundraising campaigns and led programs for children and youth from low-income neighbourhoods. She has led cohesive teams, and built strong relationships with communities and funders. Patricia is a Registered Social Worker in the Province of Ontario.

The Board of Directors would like to thank Ray White for taking on the leadership of the agency during this transition period. As Acting Executive Director, Ray has kept the organization on a strong path, and has managed University Settlement through an important programming and budget period. Ray has provided a steady set of hands on the wheel, and the Board thanks him and the Management Team for ensuring the continued vitality of University Settlement during this period.

Patricia is looking forward to meeting all of our partners and community members as she settles in to her position.

James Roy, President
