Aug 15, 2016

The Sisters of St. Joseph Neighborhood Network has appointed Heather May Caspar, MPA, as its new executive director. Caspar fills the vacancy created by Rosmari Graham’s departure to join Edinboro University as their director of grants and sponsored programs.

Caspar comes to SSJNN from Stairways Behavioral Health where she served as director of strategic communications and marketing since 2008. She is a resident of the City of Erie and has served with a variety of community initiatives and charitable boards. Caspar received her Master in Public Administration degree from Gannon University and Bachelor of Arts from Grove City College. She also is a graduate of Leadership Erie through Gannon University.

“Through tangible works like the Neighborhood Network, the Sisters of Saint Joseph are recognized change agents in the City,” said Caspar. “I am proud to be a part of this organization, and excited to work with the Sisters and the board of the Neighborhood Network to continue their good work and build for the future.”

The SSJNN, a ministry founded in 2000 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Northwestern Pennsylvania, serves neighborhoods across the heart of Erie, including the west side Little Italy Neighborhood and the Eastside Multi Cultural Community from State Street to East Avenue between 12th and  26th Streets.
